    • Abstract


      The internal fabric of a deformed rock represents the state of finite strain. In some special cases the fabrics also record the strain history of the deformed body. These special cases can profitably be utilized to compare the predictions of dynamic models and strain paths in natural deformations. In this contribution, the concept of deformation path in the study of ductile shear zones has been demonstrated.
