      This area is in the Zagros folded zone. There are different structures which include original folds , fractures , secondary folds , gravity structures and different geomorphologic forms. Because Gurpi and Amiran formations are in separation surface, fractures under separation surface and period of soft and hard formations
   so strong folds is formed in this area.The purpos of this paper is the study of mechanism of strong folds information in Lorestan. The method of study includestudy of past activities , area maps and field geology.
