Stellar Hydrodynamics Simulations

Welcome Image
Vorticity (curl derivative of velocity) in a 25M 3D stellar hydrodynamics simulation. The central bright red region is the turbulent convective core. The blue regions are the stable radiative zone that is filled with internal gravity waves. This run (M115) along with several others are reported in: Herwig et al. 2023. 3D hydrodynamic simulations of massive main-sequence stars - I. Dynamics and mixing of convection and internal gravity waves. MNRAS. 525:1601.
