Thermomechanic model of development of the West-Black Sea depression

© M. V. Lubkov

On the base of variation finite element method it was carried out computer modeling of the slow sub horizontal movements of the West-Black Sea Basin (WBSB), and also evolution of its heat fields during a period of time from the moment of access to its lower boundaries of consolidated crust of group of the most powerful asthenolithes (second quanta of tectonic action (QTA)), about 60 mln years ago to the modern geological period. On the base of general analysis of the obtained results of modeling it was shown that combined action of all considered factors of QTA mechanical and heat effects at the relevant stages of the WBSB of geological development could perfectly lead to the forming of its crust modern structure.
