Abstract

Objective methods of fold shape analysis are nessesary to better understand the behavior of folds and the folding process. I examined two methods of analysis, and used a method based on the Fourier Transform to show that the method based on the Fourier Series was insufficient for identifying shape characteristics of aperiodic natural fold trains. I also showed that the Fourier Transform method accessed information that was inaccessable using the Fourier Series method.
