Abstract

A method of strain analysis is described which takes into account a possible competence difference between the strain markers and the rest of the rock. Using data consisting of the sectional shapes and orientations of groups of inclusions from conglomerate-like rocks, limits are placed on the possible effective viscosity contrast between the inclusions and the rock as a whole as well as on the bulk finite strain suffered by the rock. These results are calculated using a computer program, based on the theory for the deformation of elliptical cylinders. The method can be considered an extension of the Rf/φ method, but provides more information and involves less restrictive assumptions.
