Displacement, Strain and Stretching L 0 (initial length) u 2 (displacement) L=L 0 +u 2 (length after application of force f 2 ) f 2 (Force) Strain : x2x2 x1x1 Stretching : Where

1D Force and Stress Equilibrium x1x1 x2x2 The sum of all vertical forces must vanish for force equilibrium: Constitutive Relationship (Hookes law) Thus

1D Constitutive Relations and Balance Equations More Constitutive Relationships: Newtonian Creep Insert into stress equilibrium: Considering the definition of the material time derivative:

1D Constitutive Relations and Balance Equations x1x1 x2x2 C is a Concentration, R is a Reaction Term (e.g. Mass Source), q i Flux of Concentration x3x3 Assumption: Thus: Example 2: Heat Equation Heat source (radioactive decay) Heat capacity Thermal conductivity Change of concentration due to change of size

Governing Equations Einsteins summation convention: Stress Equilibrium: Heat Equation: Stretching:

2 nd talk: Volcano modelling Montserrat, West Indies

Intraplate: Hotspots Anomalous areas of volcanism Mantle plumes –Ocean: low-viscosity basaltic magmas, Hawaiian Islands –Continental: high silica (high viscosity) rhyolites, Yellowstone Little information on magma source

Volcano Facts 1511 known eruptions in last 10000 years 238000 deaths in last 400 years Biggest eruption: Yellowstone, USA (2500km 3 ) Potential problem: Vesuvius, Italy Poorly understood natural phenomena with approximately 30 eruptions in any given year. Volcanoes also produce many natural resources such as important minerals and metals.

Generic Volcano Magma chamber at depth (5 – 60km) Plumbing from chamber to surface not well constrained 800 to 1200 degree C Changes in regional stress, earthquakes, can cause the volcano to erupt New eruption from exertion of magma forces, increased gas pressure or both Long term activity governed by rate of supply of new magma Different styles of volcanoes relate to different hazards

Physical properties of magma Magma = melt + crystals + gas. Melt: Temperature 800-1300 о С, pressure 10 3 -10 -1 MPa Crystals: size 10 -7 -10 -1 m, number density up to 10 17 m -3, fraction up to 95 % Gas: H 2 O - 60-95%, CO 2 - 0-35%, mass fraction 0.1-7 % Melt viscosity 10 2 -10 12 Pas Bulk viscosity depends upon: Chemical composition - more SiO 2 higher viscosity Temperature - higher temperature lower viscosity Water content - higher content lower viscosity Crystal content - higher content higher viscosity

The Level Set Method: Presentation Implicit representation of the interface by the zero level set of a smooth function φ φ is usually a signed distance function At each time step, φ is updated solving the advection equation:

The Level Set Method: Solving the advection equation (1/4) Explicit Implicit Taylor Galerkin Test: A gaussian is advected in a constant 1D velocity field.

The level set method …continued Advection dominated pdes need to require special treatment…..upwinding etc Taylor-Galerkin:

The level set method …continued 2-step alternative to Taylor-Galerkin upwinding (very effective in the presence of diffusion terms….):

The Level Set Method: Solving the advection equation (4/4) The shape gets noisy… Problem: φ looses its distance function property Reinitialisation needed!

The Level Set Method: Reinitialisation (1/3) Idea: Rebuild a signed distance function ψ from the distorted function φ Requirements: The interface must not be changed ψ must represent a distance function Solution: Solve to steady state the equation: Rewritten as: with Interpretation: The distance information is carried by w, a unit vector pointing away from the interface.
