version 1.2.2

Wolfgang Kapferer


TYCHO is a multidimensional compressible hydrodynamics code written in C and parallelized with Open-MP. A Lagrangian remap version of the Piecewise Parabolic Method developed by Paul Woodward and Phil Colella (1984) is applied. The code is based on the freely available Package. The simulation package is focused on gas-obstacle interactions and has special routines for obstacles in wind streams and advection of marker fields for investigations of obstacle-gas interactions. TYCHO is freely available to everyone. You are welcome to download it and do whatever you want with it. I would appreciate, however, if you would acknowledge the package in you publications/work and if you send me information for what purpose you use the code. Keep in mind that this code does not come with any guarantee.
