Formation and Evolution of Protoplanetary and Circumplanetary Disks with Antares Three-Dimensional Global Hydrodynamic Simulations
Figure shows an example of a nested-grid mesh refinement (NMR) run carried out by the Antares code for a global protoplanetary disk with an embedded circumplanetary disk surrounding a 0.05-Jupiter-mass planet at 5.2 AU from the star at origin. The simulation has 6 levels of refinement, with the finest resolution of 6.25×10–4 AU, resolving the Hill radius of the planet (0.13 AU at 5.2 AU) with ~200 cells. (Antares code with the CompAS project)
