    Normal faults are relatively high-angle faults in which the hanging wall moves down relative to the footwall. Normal faults result from tensional stresses and result in the stretching or extension of the crust. Reverse faults are relatively high-angle faults in which the hanging wall moves up relative to the footwall. These faults are caused by compressional stresses and result in the thickening and shortening of rocks or the crust. Thrust faults are low-angle reverse faults with the hanging wall moving up relative to the footwall. Because of their low angle, most of the movement in a thrust fault is in a horizontal direction. Thrust faults are caused by compressional stresses and result in thickening and shortening of the crust. In strike-slip faults, the movement is mainly in a horizontal direction and parallel to the trend, or strike, of the fault. Strike-slip faults are commonly caused by shear stresses.
