Short summary
We present an analogue modeling study on the interaction of pre-existing joints and normal faults using cohesive powder. We vary the angle between joints and a rigid basement fault and analyze interpreted map-view photographs at maximum displacement for various parameters and compare to nature. Results show a clear effect of increasing angle between joints and faults on fault geometry, fracture density and connectivity. These information can help interpreting fractured layers in the subsurface.
