  1. Workshop on the Impacts associated with the primary fallout of volcanic ash and subsequent aeolian remobilisation, Consensual Document

    19 May 2020 | Publications | Contributor(s): Lucia Dominguez, Costanza Bonadonna, Donaldo Bran

    The inherent complexity associated with volcanic eruptions and their relationship with societies requires innovative strategies about how we assess and manage risk. The 2011 Cordón Caulle eruption (2011-CC) demonstrated the additional complexity associated with secondary hazards and...

  2. Workshop on Wind-remobilisation processes of volcanic ash, Consensual Document

    20 Feb 2020 | Publications | Contributor(s): Costanza Bonadonna, Paul A Jarvis, Lucia Dominguez, Corine Frischknecht, Pablo Forte, Donaldo Bran, Rigoberto Aguilar, Frances Beckett, Manuela Elissondo, Jack Gillies, ulrich kueppers, Jonathan Merrison, Nick Varley, Kristi L Wallace

    Explosive volcanic eruptions can eject large quantities of tephra into the atmosphere that can be dispersed and deposited over wide areas. Whilst the hazardous consequences of primary tephra fallout are well known, subsequent remobilisation of ash by aeolian processes can continue to present an...

  3. PYFLOW_2.0. A new tool for estimating the impact parameters and the deposition rate and time of dilute PDCs based on field data

    22 Nov 2017 | Offline Tools | Contributor(s): Fabio Dioguardi, Daniela Mele, Pierfrancesco Dellino

    PYFLOW_2.0 is a hazard tool for the calculation of the impact parameters of dilute pyroclastic density currents (DPDCs). DPDCs represent the dilute turbulent type of gravity flows that occur during explosive volcanic eruptions; their hazard is the result of their mobility and the capability...

  7. Confort 15 (Conflow improvement)

    22 Apr 2016 | Offline Tools | Contributor(s): Silvia Campagnola, Claudia Romano, Larry G Mastin, Alessandro Vona

    We present an updated version of the Conflow model, an open-source numerical model for flow in eruptive conduits during steady-state pyroclastic eruptions (Mastin and Ghiorso, 2000). In the Confort 15 program, several updates were considered:The rheological parameters of the model are...

  8. ASHEE

    14 Aug 2015 | Offline Tools | Contributor(s): Matteo Cerminara, Tomaso Esposti Ongaro

    A fluid-dynamic model is developed to numerically simulate the non-equilibrium dynamics of polydisperse gas-particle mixtures forming volcanic plumes. Starting from the three-dimensional N-phase Eulerian transport equations for a mixture of gases and solid particles, we adopt an asymptotic...
