Also known as
Model type Single
Model part of larger framework
Incorporated models or components:
Spatial dimensions 1D
Spatial extent
Model domain Geodynamic
One-line model description Lithospheric flexure solution for a broken plate
Extended model description Lithospheric flexure solution for a broken plate. Load is assumed to be represented by equal width loading elements specified distance from broken edge of plate. Inclusion of sediments as part of the restoring force effect is possible by choice of density assigned to density (2).
