The static shape of yield-strength fluids slowly emplaced on slopes

Osmond, D; Griffiths, Ross


A theoretical solution is presented for the static three-dimensional shape of a fluid having a finite yield strength after it is extruded slowly from a small source on an inclined plane. The solution is compared to the shapes obtained in laboratory experiments in which slurries of kaolin in polyethylene glycol wax were ejected, slowly and in small incremental volumes, onto a slope. This study is aimed at understanding the shape of highly silicic lava flows, such as large rhyolite flows which...[Show more]
