Studying statistical and fractal characteristics of fracture systems in Taknar Zone, Central Iran using remote sensing based fracture map



Structural Fracture Map of Taknar Zone in Central Iran has been drawn using 6 applied remote sensing methods, based on local morphological and structural characteristics. In this paper detected fractures were classified to 6 main directions after studying their distribution in the related diagram. Then rose diagrams of the fractures were drawn for 5 different regions of the zone, for studying distribution of each group of the 6 fracture sets. Most of the fractures and variety of them were concentrated in the central and southern part of the zone. In the next part of the study, Length values (L) of the fractures were calculated and classified in 3 main classes. It was found that the number of each fracture set decreases exponentially by increasing the length values. Calculating Spacing (S) values of each fracture set and comparing them with the number of fractures showed similar conclusions:
