A series of analogue models were run to investigate oblique inversion of pre-existing grabens when overprinted by later shortening and the effect of these grabens on development of contractional structures. Obliquity angle (α) defining the initial trend of pre-existing grabens relative to the shortening direction, was systematically changed from 0°, 10°, 20°, 30°, 40°, 50°, 65° and 90°. Different structural styles are shown in different models and also in sections cutting across different parts of the models. Model results show that existence of multi-grabens enhances lateral discontinuity of overprinted thrusts in map view. With increasing the obliquity...
