Pecube: a new finite-element code to solve the 3D heat transport equation including the effects of a time-varying, finite amplitude surface topography

Braun, Jean


A robust finite-element code (Pecube) has been developed to solve the three-dimensional heat transport equation in a crustal/lithospheric block undergoing uplift and surface erosion, and characterized by an evolving, finite-amplitude surface topography. The time derivative of the temperature field is approximated by a second-order accurate, mid-point, implicit scheme that takes into account the changing geometry of the problem. The method is based on a mixed Eulerian-Lagrangian approach that...[Show more]
