Nucleosynthesis in Multi-Dimensional Simulations of SNII
We investigate explosive nuclear burning in core collapse supernovae by coupling a tracer particle method to one- and two-dimensional Eulerian hydrodynamic calculations. Adopting the most recent experimental and theoretical nuclear data, we compute the nucleosynthetic yields for 15 M ⨀ stars with solar metallicity, by post-processing the temperature and density history of advected tracer particles. We compare our results to 1D calculations published in the literature.
