AGB-dust

This is a subroutine package specifically developed for calculating the dust production by AGB stars with varying C/O abundance ratios as they develop along the AGB and dredge up carbon after each thermal pulse. It solves the equations for dust growth, outflow velocity and temperature stratification in a stationary, spherically symmetric outflow. It is based on a simple outflow model and uses either a simple analytic model for a gray dust temperature stratification in the dust shell (rapid), or it calculates self-consistently temperatures for each dust species by solving the radiative transfer problem in the dust shell and iterating to flux constancy (slow). In that case also the spectrum is calculated.

It considers the following dust species:

The program is written in FORTRAN77

The details of the dust formation algorithm are essentially described in:

but is extended by some further species and in particular considers paricle drift.
