intrafolial fold A thinned and modified, tight to isoclinal fold (see also FOLD) which commonly shows a fold hinge with only vestiges of detached limbs (see FOLD LIMB). Such folds are the result of intense deformation which causes bedding to be transposed along zones of shear and solution. See also SHEAR STRESS.
