We perform numerical simulations of the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability in the mid-plane of a protoplanetary disc. A two-dimensional corotating slice in the azimuthal–vertical plane of the disc is considered where we include the Coriolis force and the radial advection of the Keplerian rotation flow. Dust grains, treated as individual particles, move under the influence of friction with the gas, while the gas is treated as a compressible fluid. The friction force from the dust grains on the gas… CONTINUE READING
