Visualizing Simulated Volcanic Eruptions

SESSION: Scientific Visualization Showcase Exhibit

EVENT TYPE: Scientific Visualization Showcases

TIME: 8:30AM - 5:00PM

AUTHOR(S):Amit Chourasia, Darcy Ogden

ROOM:Mile High Pre-Function

Eruptive conduits feeding volcanic jets and plumes are connected to the atmosphere through volcanic vents that, depending on their size and 3D shape, can alter the dynamics and structure of these eruptions. The host rock comprising the vent, in turn, can collapse, fracture, and erode in response to the eruptive flow field. This project uses cutting edge visualization to illustrate and analyze results from fully coupled numerical simulations of high speed, multiphase volcanic mixtures erupting through erodible, visco-plastic host rocks. The visualizations explores the influence of different host rock rheologies and eruptive conditions on the development of simulated volcanic jets.
