Mehdi Nikkhoo's Matlab software for the modelling of displacements and stresses due to shear, tensile and volumetric sources in elastic media

From Mehdi Nikhoo's webpage you can download matlab functions that will make it simple for you to model the stress and displacement field caused by a dislocation or by a pressurized magma chamber of generic shape.

Tim Davis' Matlab and Julia tools to model fracture slip or propagation in elastic media

From Tim Davis's Github page you can download software that you can use to model the stress and displacements due to fractures in elastic media as well as their slip/opening  and their propagation.

SEMINAR on the implications of magma propagation by diking

This seminar, which is part of a broader series organized by the Volcanic and Plumbing Systems (VIPS) commission of IAVCEI, explains in simple terms how magma propagates in brittle-solid rocks, what are the implications of this form of transport for magma chemistry and its evolution, and how we can ...

SEMINAR on the principles of modelling magma propagation by diking

In this seminar, which is part of a broader series on magma ascent in subduction zones, I explain in simple terms how magma propagation by diking is modelled, what are fundamental principles and how we can forecast magma trajectories and eruptive sites.
