Abstract: Strain-path partitioning (partitioning of deformation into components of pure and simple shear) in two Alpine nappes is qualitatively indicated by a variation in orientation of foliation, microkinematic criteria, quartz textures, and a comparison with strain-path partitioning in theoretical nappe models. The degree of non-coaxial deformation relative to the total deformation is quantified by using the asymmetry of textures in calcite tectonites. The texture interpretation is based on both polycrystal plasticity models and experimental data.
