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...

PYFLOW is a multi-block code for the calculation of the flow field variables of dilute pyroclasticdensity currents (hereafter DPDCs) starting from the deposits characteristics. The code, written inFortran 90, solves an improved version of the model of Dellino et al. (2008): it calculates...
