Traverses/Terzaghi Weighting

  1. What is the purpose of defining Linear or Planar traverses in Dips? For a Borehole traverse, I understand that the orientation data defining the geometry of the borehole and its reference line is necessary to compute the orientation of the fracture planes from alpha and beta. It is not as clear how the orientation data for the Linear and Planar traverses are used given that the fracture orientations are input directly.

  2. I have difficulty getting the Terzaghi Weighting to come up every time. What can I do?

  3. Can the column labeled "Traverse" be moved to the first column position?

  4. For a Linear traverse, what is the orientation format of the Orient1 and Orient2 values in the Traverse Information dialog?
