[Geology/kinematic]----Strike-slip system are faults that comprise straights, segments sub-parallel to the regional slip vector, and bends oblique to it. Displacements maybe transferred between two faults across an offset. Pure strike-slip on the straights necessarily causes potential overlap at a bend of one sense (restraining bend, Crowell1974) and a potential void at a bend of the other sense (releasing bend, Crowell 1974)[Woodcock and Fisher, 1986].The component of the fault displacement parallel to the fault strike.
