I’m modeling a rifting process with mantle melting (without melt migration) by using Visco Plastic and Latent heat melt material models (ASPECT 2.3.0-pre). I would like to use a different peridotite solidus and therefore I set different A1, A2 and A3 parameters in the input. However, apparently melt still occurs under the default peridotite solidus conditions (i.e. melt occurs at higher temperatures than I set).
I wonder if I’m doing something wrong or there is a problem I don’t understand.
I attach my input file.
Many thanks in advance.
