The major Quaternaryfaults in the Tehran-Semnan region can be classified based on their strikesinto three sets: northeast-southwest, northwest-southeast and east-west. Inthis paper, we use a model to evaluate fault movement potential FMP. Theirtheoretical model is based on the relationship between fault geometricalcharacteristics and regional tectonic stress field. The results show that TheMosha, Emam Zadeh Davood and Pourlcan-Vardij fault zones have high FMP 0.9 or90% and the Parchin fault zone has very low FMP 0.0 - 0.1 in the area.
