DENVER –StructureSolver is presenting its StructureSolver 2.0 geophysical interpretation program at SEG Denver 2014.

The program supplies methods of structural modeling and restoration that incorporate structural history, kinematics, and internal strain measures, says the company. It includes linked animations of multiple structures, calculation and display of strain ellipse and strain markers for structural surfaces, and animation of strain throughout time.

StructureSolver also features “one-click” structural restoration that can restore interpreted seismic or geologic sections by restoring slip across faults.

StructureSolver says the method seeks to create paleovertical trajectories in the present day seismic or geologic section that correspond to unbroken vertical traces in the restored section. A hybrid approach is used where length is conserved along the reference horizon, the internal parts of fault blocks are restored using vertical shear, and a constant amount of slip is removed along each fault, equal to the slip of the reference horizon across that fault.
