hyperion.densities.FlaredDisk¶

class
hyperion.densities.
FlaredDisk
(mass=None, rho_0=None, rmin=None, rmax=None, p=1, beta=1.25, h_0=None, r_0=None, cylindrical_inner_rim=True, cylindrical_outer_rim=True, star=None, dust=None)¶ This class implements the density structure for a flared axisymmatric disk, with a density given by:
where
The parameter does not need to be set directly (although it can be), and is instead automatically calculated when you set the disk mass. The exact equation relating to the disk mass can be found by integrating the equation for over three dimensions and setting the result equal to the disk mass.
Once the
FlaredDisk
class has been instantiated, the parameters for the density structure can be set via attributes:>>> from hyperion.util.constants import msun, au >>> from hyperion.densities.flared_disk import FlaredDisk >>> disk = FlaredDisk() >>> disk.mass = 2. * msun >>> disk.rmin = 0.1 * au >>> disk.rmax = 100 * au

dust properties (filename or dust object) Methods
density
(grid)Return the density grid midplane_cumulative_density
(r)Find the cumulative column density as a function of radius. vertical_cumulative_density
(r, theta)Find the cumulative column density as a function of theta. Methods (detail)

density
(grid)¶ Return the density grid
Parameters: grid :
SphericalPolarGrid
orCylindricalPolarGrid
instance.The spherical or cylindrical polar grid object containing information about the position of the grid cells.
Returns: rho : np.ndarray
A 3dimensional array containing the density of the disk inside each cell. The shape of this array is the same as
grid.shape
.

midplane_cumulative_density
(r)¶ Find the cumulative column density as a function of radius.
The cumulative density is measured outwards from the origin, and in the midplane.
Parameters: r : np.ndarray
Array of values of the radius up to which to tabulate the cumulative density.
Returns: rho : np.ndarray
Array of values of the cumulative density.

vertical_cumulative_density
(r, theta)¶ Find the cumulative column density as a function of theta.
Parameters: r : float
The spherical radius at which to calculate the cumulative density.
theta : np.ndarray
The theta values at which to tabulate the cumulative density.
Returns: rho : np.ndarray
Array of values of the cumulative density.
