# A calibration of the mixing-length for solar-type stars based on hydrodynamical simulations - I. Methodical aspects and results for solar metallicity

@article{Ludwig1998ACO, title={A calibration of the mixing-length for solar-type stars based on hydrodynamical simulations - I. Methodical aspects and results for solar metallicity}, author={Hans-G. Ludwig and Bernd Freytag and M. Steffen}, journal={arXiv: Astrophysics}, year={1998} }

Based on detailed 2D numerical radiation hydrodynamics (RHD) calculations of time-dependent compressible convection, we have studied the dynamics and thermal structure of the convective surface layers of solar-type stars. The RHD models provide information about the convective efficiency in the superadiabatic region at the top of convective envelopes and predict the asymptotic value of the entropy of the deep, adiabatically stratified layers. This information is translated into an effective… Expand

Radiative-hydrodynamical simulations of solar surface convection can be used as 2D/3D time-dependent models of the solar atmosphere to predict the emergent spectrum, and the resulting detailed spectral line profiles agree spectacularly well with observations without invoking any micro- and macroturbulence parameters.
