Fantastic question! I think I went into this a little (like just one bullet) on the last page when discussing that there are "different geologic structures" and how you have to think about them *geometrically*: viewtopic.php?f=285&t=12238#p362289
There I discuss how different "structures" exist in geology (e.g. folds, faults, beds of rock, etc), and you can characterize different features or parts of these structures by their *geometry* (into planes, lines, and points). Unless I'm mistaken, the different geometric features are typically called "structural elements". I found folds were a good way of showing how a common geologic structure can be broken up into these different parts (you can search for "fold elements", "fold structure", etc and hopefully see examples and diagrams of this). Beyond this, I believe "geology structural elements" can be googled.
Are these explanations confusing / do you still not know what to look for? I wasn't sure, did this explain "what topics would this cover"? Hope this helps!
