Long-time 3D core-collapse supernova models (2013)
Wongwathanarat, A., Müller, E., & Janka, H.-Th. (unpublished, to be submitted to A&A)
In the simulations, four different progenitor models (two 20 solar-mass RSGs from Woosley & Weaver (1995) and Limongi et al. (2000), a 15 solar-mass BSG from Woosley & Weaver (1988) and a 20 solar-mass BSG from Shigeyama et al. (1990)) are followed up to 30 hours after bounce. The Helmholtz EOS by Timmes & Swesty (2000) is used. The calculations make use of the Yin-Yang grid technique. 3D Newtonian self-gravity and an alpha reaction network consisting of 13(+1) species are included.
