Understanding the dynamics of naturally fractured systems and fractured reservoirs in terms of flow, heat transport and fracture stability (e.g. earthquakes) is important for a range of applications including geothermal systems, waste water injection and natural fluid-driven seismicity. Many numerical codes exist that can simulate aspects of these dynamics, but in general require either expensive...
