What type of fault is produced from shearing?

The deformation of a material so that its layers move laterally over each other. In geology, shearing bends, twists, and draws out rocks along a fault or thrust plane. Such shearing is sometimes accompanied by shattering or crushing of the rock near the fault. A shearing force acts parallel to a plane rather than perpendicularly. Shear stress is the force or forces applied tangentially to the surface of a body and causing bending, twisting, or drawing out of that body.
