23
First subduction model : 2D Rectangle domain Plate Upper mantle

24
First subduction model : 2D Lengths of the domain 3120 km 660 km Plate Upper mantle Lower mantle 100 km

25
First subduction model : 2D Boundary conditions No slip Plate Upper mantle Lower mantle

26
First subduction model : 2D Boundary conditions No slip Plate Upper mantle Lower mantle Free slip

27
First subduction model : 2D Boundary conditions No slip Plate Upper mantle Lower mantle Free slip

28
First subduction model : 2D Boundary conditions No slip Plate Upper mantle Lower mantle Free slip No slip

29
Governing equations Rayleigh-Taylor Instability: dense slab sinks into a less dense mantle … conservation of mass, incompressible medium … conservation of momentum … deviatoric stress tensorwith no energy equation

30
Rheology Viscous mantle Viscoplastic plate ViscousPlastic

31
The hardware: Horus supercomputer

32
2D subduction results

33
Lifecycle : flow reorganization

34
Necessity of the third dimension Importance of the mantle flow Real subductions have a limited lateral extent Interactions on the lateral edges of subduction zones

35
Subduction modeling About the plate tectonics 2D subduction model 3D subduction model Future works

36
3D subduction model Same governing equations Same tools used … only a different setup

37
3D subduction model upper mantle plate with subduction zone no upper plate Box size: big enough, for side walls to have little effect on subducting slab

38
The level set field subducting slab only subducting part of the plate is included in the FE domain use level set to define and track the subducting plate

39
Symmetry hypothesis assume symmetry: model only half of the domain free slip side boundary

40
Bottom boundary condition higher viscosity in LM and phase boundary hinder convection fixed bottom boundary

41
Slab boundary conditions plate fixed, to isolate effects of tearing and rollback fixed end free slip top boundary

42
Edge of the slab extreme case: free slip tear zone

43
Top boundary condition plate bottom fixed

44
Sides boundary conditions Freeslip on the sides

45
3D subduction results

46
Lifecycle of the subduction

47
Reorganization of the flow
