Engineering geologists study discontinuities very carefully due to their direct influence to the physiography of the landforms and fluid transportation. The study carried out in Injana Formation which is lies within Pulkhana anticline in the unstable shelf of Iraq and in an area of 5 *10 m, to evaluate the effects of discontinuities parameters as well as calculating stress direction that led to form discontinuities in Injana Formation. The average of each of discontinuity parameter has been taken and the orientation applied on the stereographic project (schmidth type). Measurements of discontinuities parameters showed varied readings while the main principal stresses direction that effected the study area is directed N39- 50.5E compatible with the regional stress.
