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.
