Abstract

In complex area, the construction of geological horizons as triangulated surfaces requires usually additional information to the initial data set. Such information include: (1) the existence of structural axis (at the top of the anticline or at the bottom of the syncline). (2) the fact to honor a given dip (3) the fact to be at a given distance to an horizon. (4) the fact to honor a known geological map at the intersection between the 3D models and a topography given by a DEM. (5) the fact to be unfoldable (6) the fact to end in a coherent cumulative strain field We have developed new constrains in Gocad to facilitate the building of surfaces following these roles.
