Abstract: 

The Anaran anticline is located between Lurestan (in the north) and Dezful Embayment (in the south) zones in the Zagros fold-thrust belt. This anticline and adjacent anticlines are affected by the Balarud blind thrust fault zone, which is a part of Mountain Front Fault. The Mountain Front Fault is a major topographic front that can be traced along the Zagros folded-thrust belt in the Izeh, Fars, Lurestan and Dezful Embayment.
The field observations, analyses of the geometric parameters and comparison of the anticline with the theoretical fault-related folding models suggest that the Anaran anticline is a fault-bend fold mode
Õ that is sheared by Balarud blind thrust fault zone.
