Computational strain analysis methods developed at University College of Cork have been used to analyse several samples taken from Talas Ala Tau, Kyrgyzs Republic. These methods are more accurate and faster than manual methods. This study has revealed that the finite strain measured in Talas Ala Tau rocks (principally high quartz percentage feldespatic sandstones and feldespatic graywackes) is independent of lithology and the general strain trend in this fold and thrust belt.
