[Tectonic-Mechanics]----Transpression is considered as a transcurrent shear along a shear plane. Transpression occurs when both the horizontal shortening across and vertical lengthening along are coeval [1]. The term has been used to describe strains of strike-slip structures formed during traspressional or transtesnional stress conditions (Marret and Peackock, 1999).
