Simulation Data from: The EOS/Resolution Conspiracy: Convergence in Proto-Planetary Collision Simulations

Thomas Meier, Christian Reinhardt & Joachim Stadel
We investigate how the choice of equation of state (EOS) and resolution conspire to affect the outcomes of giant impact (GI) simulations. We focus on the simple case of equal mass collisions of two Earth-like 0.5ME proto-planets showing that the choice of EOS has a profound impact on the outcome of such collisions as well as on the numerical convergence with resolution. In simulations where the Tillotson EOS is used, impacts generate an excess amount...
