2012 Modern Numerical Methods for Modeling Convection in the Earth’s Mantle
Timo Heister, Ph.D.
We present the new open source code ASPECT for modeling convection in the earth's mantle (see www.dealii.org/aspect). ASPECT uses modern numerical methods and provides very good parallel scalability; this is achieved by building on the open source finite element library deal.II (see www.dealii.org and the previous webinar talk by Wolfgang Bangerth).
In this webinar, talk we will step through the many ingredients necessary for a modern simulation code: time discretization, nonlinear methods, linear solvers, stabilization, adaptivity, and parallelization. Finally, the effectiveness is shown in several numerical examples.
