(<b>a</b>) Set-up with tilted multilayer surrounded by an inviscid fluid above and below; (<b>b</b>) thrusting and (<b>c</b>) kink band mode of failure, with red arrows indicating virtual velocities. (<b>d</b>) Close-up of a single layer of the kink band. The green and blue regions represent regions of opening and compression/compaction along the kink planes. The red circles mark the transition from compaction to opening. The black arrows along the bedding planes indicate bedding-parallel slip, which is activated during the kink band development due to the rotation of the lithons.
