Abstract

Dynamic simulation on volcanic sediment transport S. Soehodho & J. M. Hem Center for Transport Studies, Civil Engineering Department, University of Indonesia Abstract Sediments of volcanic eruption are useful for structural materials such as buildings and roads. Mining of such materials is becoming illegal and to some extent may destroy the environment. In the peripheries of many active volcanoes pockets are to be constructed for mitigation during the eruption, and for exploitation at a later time for some commercial activities. Issues on the balance of such mitigation and exploitation are to be simulated in a dynamic manner to analyze inflow and outflow of the volcanic materials. The optimal size pocket, called sabo, is to be determined by such analyses for efficiency of construction as well as effectiveness of the mitigation itself. The rate of inflow materials is predicted in the light of available historical data, and in a similar approach the recorded exploitation activities are used to d
