Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The objective of this research is to investigate the role of fluid migration in enhancing thermally-activated healing processes.The numerical model couples fluid flow, heat transfer, and crack healing to simulate the permeability reduction due to fluid assisted healing in a fault zone. The calculation file computes the time for healing of one crack based on different mechanisms: surface diffusion and precipitation-dissolution. The parameters used in the work are based on literature data cited in the corresponding submitted journal article.
