Introduction to numerical geodynamic modelling

By: Gerya, TarasMaterial type: TextTextLanguage: English Publication details: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2019 Edition: 2nd edDescription: xiii, 471p. hbISBN: 9781107143142Subject(s): GEODYNAMICS | GEOLOGY | GEOPHYSICSDDC classification: 551.2 Summary: This hands-on introduction to numerical geodynamic modelling provides a solid grounding in the necessary mathematical theory and techniques, including continuum mechanics and partial differential equations, before introducing key numerical modelling methods and applications. Fully updated, this second edition includes four completely new chapters covering the most recent advances in modelling inertial processes, seismic cycles and fluid-solid interactions, and the development of adaptive mesh refinement algorithms. Many well-documented, state-of-the-art visco-elasto-plastic 2D models are presented, which allow robust modelling of key geodynamic processes. Requiring only minimal prerequisite mathematical training, and featuring over sixty practical exercises and ninety MATLAB® examples, this user-friendly resource encourages experimentation with geodynamic models. It is an ideal introduction for advanced courses and can be used as a self-study aid for graduates seeking to master geodynamic modelling for their own research projects. • Provides an optimal study path based on the author's extensive experience of teaching the topic • Continuum mechanics and numerical modelling are explained in simple terms, making this an accessible introductory text for graduate students • A uniform and simple numerical method is used enabling the reader to understand modelling of many complex problems using the same simple method • Many analytical and programming exercises are proposed with online MATLAB examples provided, allowing students to test their knowledge
