Calderas are volcanic structures, which can be dangerous but also beneficial at the same time. Therefore, it is important to understand complex processes leading to a formation of the calderas. For this purpose, numerical simulations using the finite element method can be employed very well. In our paper, we look for a simplified, yet still realistic concept of modeling of a host rock and a magma chamber. Results indicate that our approach is able to capture phenomena, which are described by geologists in field studies. This work shows that it is possible to model a complex volcanological process using a relatively simple concept.
