Hydrodynamic Simulations of Counterrotating Accretion Disks

Authors: Kuznetsov O.A., Lovelace R.V.E., Romanova M.M., Chechetkin V.M.


 Fig 1 corresponds to the case where the incoming matter rotates in the same direction as the disk.



Fig 2 corresponds to the incoming matter rotating in the opposite direction to that of the disk matter. The logarithm of the density is represented by the color scale shown. The white line shows centrifugal barrier for the inflowing gas. The vectors show the poloidal velocity.
