are extremely difficult to run. It is therefore not possible to run shock models
from this website. However, Mark Allen and Ralph Sutherland have run a large
shock grid with a wide
range of parameters that should be suitable for most
These pre-run grids are available for shock models with
a wide range of shock velocities from v=100 to 1000 km/s, and
four metallicities: lmc, smc, solar, twice solar.
The models available include the precursor and shock
emission for all shock velocities (100, 150, 175, 200, 225, 250, 275, 300,
325, 350, 400, 450, 500, 550, 600, 650, 700, 800, 900, 1000 km/s). The
spectrum files include four spectra (Fnu vs E) for each velocity:
|XXXX0001.sou = shock downstream, through the back |
|XXXX0002.sou = shock upstream, out the front |
|XXXX0003.sou = precursor + shock upstream absorbed through precursor |
|XXXX0004.sou = precursor only |
|Use of these shock grids requires a reference to Allen et al.
(2008, ApJ, in press)|
Users wishing to run shock models for parameters not covered
by the grid should either download the Mappings
source code, or contact Mark Allen and/or Ralph Sutherland. All users
should become familiar with the papers by Allen, Sutherland & Dopita below.
To avoid errors, it is advisable to run new shock models in collaboration with
and/or Mike Dopita.
