Building Planets with Dusty Gas

By D. Deming, S. Seager, S. T. Maddison and R. J. Humble


Abstract. We have developed a new numerical technique for simulating dusty-gas flows. Our unique code incorporates gas hydrodynamics, self-gravity and dust drag to follow the dynamical evolution of a dusty-gas medium. We have incorporated several descriptions for the drag between gas and dust phases and can model flows with submillimetre, centimetre and metre size “dust”. We present calculations run on the APAC 1 supercomputer following the evolution of the dust distribution in the pre-solar nebula. 1
