Mocassin grid maker

This grid maker can build you grids for use in mocassin, in the form of spherical or elliptical shells, toruses, or bipolar outflows, or any superposition of these.

General parameters

nx: ny: nz:
Grid cell size proportional to rwhat?: SymmetricXYZ?

Shell component

Inner radii: x: y: z:
Outer radii: x: y: z:
Particle density proportional to rwhat?:
Particle density at shell inner radius 1:

Torus component

For an inclination of 0, the torus lies in the XY plane and so is in the plane of the sky when viewed along the z-axis.

Torus radius: Tube radius:
Particle number density at inner and outer edges:
Inclination (degrees):

Bipolar component

The bipolar component is modelled as a shell lying between two ellipsoids with vertices at the origin, opening out along the z-axis.

Inner ellipsoid semimajor axis: Semiminor axis:
Outer ellipsoid semimajor axis: Semiminor axis:
Particle density proportional to rwhat?:
Particle density at distance=semimajor axis:
Cutoff at z=:
