Dump Files

These are binary restart dump files from which KEPLER can be resumed.

New Dump Quantities

Since Version 14, beyond the new parameters and saved zonal arrays the following things have been added:

datapath

CHARACTER*(80)

Contains a search path for data files

wind

array(nitz)

Stores the APPROX abundances removed from the star

windb

array(nitzb)

stores the BURN abundances removed from the star

The following are saved if irecb (p 418) = 1:

nbmax

integer

number of maximum burn abundances recorded

nabmax

array(nburn)

mass number of maximum burn abundance

nzbmax

array(nburn)

charge number of maximum burn abundance

nibmax

array(nburn)

index of current ppnb isotopes in maximum BURN abundance array

burnamax

array(nburn)

stores the maximum abundances reached in the BURN network

burnmmax

array(nburn)

stores the mass coordinates where the maximum abundances in the BURN network were reached

bcmax

array(nburn)

stores the cycle numbers of when the maximum abundances in the BURN network were reached

icon

Array of zonal convection sentinels (character(8)).

conv

indicates full convection

semi

indicate semiconvection

osht

indicate that overshoot mixing is being done in zones adjacent to convective regions

neut

(for “neutral”) indicates that while still radiative, the zonal interface is within a small amount (quantified and controlled by fracneut (p 59) ) of being convective

thal

(for “thermohaline”) indicates that thermohalin mixing operates in that zone, controlled by alpth (p 425)

____

(4 spaces), indicate that the interface is well into the regime where only radiative transfer takes place across the interface.

Note

There may still be other mixing processes operating, i.e., due to rotation and induced by dynamos/magnetic fields.
