Pressure filtration waves in cracks in porous permeable medium are studied. The effect of the porosity and permeability of the formation and crack, the crack width, and the rheological properties of the saturating fluid on the dynamics of perturbations in the crack are studied. It is shown that in a porous permeable formation, a crack is a wave channel through which low-frequency pressure fluctuations in wells propagate. Accurate solutions are obtained which describe the evolution of pressure fields in a crack with an instantaneous pressure change in the well by a constant value. Based on these solutions, the corresponding dependences of the fluid flow on time and the pressure at the boundaries are determined.
