Nature of problem:A two-dimensional computer program to be used for solving hydrodynamic and hydromagnetic equations in various geometries. The effects of gravity, ohmic dissipation and -diffusion, radiative losses and thermal conduction are included through an implicit, time-split coupled, step. The convective part of the equations is solved by the SHASTA numerical code, having second-order accuracy but guaranteeing monotonicity in the directly-convected quantities. One-dimensional and isothermal applications are possible. The program uses the equation for conservation of total energy (U-version). | ||

Solution method:Vectorized, two-dimensional explicit convection step with predictor- corrector ordening for second-order solution with removal of numerically produced extrema, time-split coupled to an implicit, tridiagonal matrix solver for physical conduction, radiation and diffusion. | ||

Running time:Achieving equilibrium in longest physical time scale will require typically 1200 time steps. Duration of one time step (-5% for adiabatic, -25% for diffusion free calculations): 22 s (CDC 6500), 6 s (CDC6600), 4s (IBM 370/168), 15 s (IBM 370/158) for a 63 X 43 grid in single precision. | ||
