This page is the entry point for several pages which show the results of some numerical models of porous fluid flow through stressed crustal systems



  • Influx of pressurized fluids into stressed rocks

  • Pore Pressure Diffusion
  • Pumping of fluids through shear zones
  • Strain incompatibility during shearing
  • Shear bands: dilation and friction angle
  • Shear bands and fluid flow
  • Shear bands in layered materials
  • Role of impermeable layers in controling crustal fluid flow
