Brief overview of the Cronos MHD code

Alfven wing test

Here, the speed of the fluid is shown (color-coded) together with the magnetic field direction (white lines).

Cronos is optimised for

  • General hyperbolic equations
  • Compressible hydrodynamics
  • Compressible MHD
  • Special relativistic hydrodynamics

Some features of Cronos

  • Highly modular code structure
  • Conservative, shock capturing scheme
  • Second order accuracy
  • Constrained transport MHD
  • MPI parallel
  • Different Riemann solvers
  • Different grid geometries
