Granite intrusion in transtensional regime is modelled by injecting a Newtonian fluid into a sand pack containing a ductile layer. The transtensional regime is obtained using two plastic sheets sliding along two rigid horizontal plates, and diverging from two narrow spaces (two fixed velocity discontinuities). The injection tube is located in a central space between these plates. Both symmetric experiments (when the two sheets were displaced with equal and opposite velocity vectors) and asymmetric experiments (in which only one sheet was displaced) were performed. Transtension was applied with a systematic variation (every 15°) of the divergence angle (α), between...
