Long-term and large-scale hydrodynamical simulations of migrating planets
Benítez-Llambay et al
We present a new method that allows long-term and large-scale hydrodynamical simulations of migrating planets over a grid-based Eulerian code. This technique, which consists in a remapping of the disk by tracking the planetary migration, enables runs of migrating planets over a time comparable to the age of protoplanetary disks. This method also has the potential to address efficiently problems related with migration of multi-planet systems in gaseous disks, and to improve current results of migration of massive planets by including global viscous evolution as well as detailed studies of the co-orbital region during migration. We perform different tests using the public code FARGO3D to validate this method and compare its results with those obtained using a classical fixed grid.
