Short summary
In this paper, we present newly developed numerical models to simulate episodic growth of geological faults. This growth of faults occurs during the seismic cycle, with spontaneously generated primary and secondary fault structures. With these models we are able to show the evolution of complex fault geometries. Additionally, we can quantify the impact of earthquakes on fault growth.
