• A protocol is proposed to test transpression models in brittle shear zones.
• Bulk triclinic transpression in the TAM is partitioned into two different flow fields.
• Simple-shear-dominated bands at boundaries vs. pure-shear-dominated inner domain.
• Kinematic and far-field transpression parameters are graphically linked.
• The theoretical velocity vector obtained for the TAM is 099-118.
Oblique convergence and subsequent transpression kinematics can be considered as the general situation in most convergent and strike-slip tectonic boundaries. To better understand such settings, progressively more complex kinematic models have been proposed, which need to be tested against natural shear zones using standardized procedures that minimise subjectivism. In this work, a protocol to test a general triclinic transpression model is applied to the Torcal de Antequera massif (TAM), an essentially brittle shear zone. Our results, given as kinematic parameters of the transpressive flow (transpression obliquity, ϕ; extrusion obliquity, υ; and kinematic vorticity number, Wk), suggest that the bulk triclinic transpressive flow imposed on the TAM was partitioned into two different flow fields, following a general partitioning type. As such, one flow field produced narrow structural domains located at the limits of the TAM, where mainly dextral strike-slip simple-shear-dominated transpression took place (Outer domains, ODs). In contrast, the remaining part of the bulk flow produced pure-shear-dominated dextral triclinic transpression at the inner part of the TAM (Inner domain, ID). A graphical method relating internal (ϕ, Wk) to far-field (dip of the shear zone boundary, δ; angle of oblique convergence, α ) transpression parameters is proposed to obtain the theoretical horizontal velocity vector (V→), which in the case of the TAM, ranges between 099 and 118. These results support the applicability of kinematic models of triclinic transpression to brittle-ductile shear zones and the potential utility of the proposed protocol.
