FARGO3D

Home > Legacy archive > User’s manual > Parameters > Ninterm

Number of intermediate calculations covering each a time interval DT, between two successive outputs of hydrodynamic variables. Note that a shortcoming of FARGO is that it is not possible to select individually the dates of hydrodynamic variables outputs. If you wish an output at t=2, t=4 and t=8 orbits, then you need to have an output every 2 orbits (t=0, 2, 4, 6, 8,\ldots). An awkward workaround to this would be to stop the code after each output, redefine Ninterm or [DT->26] or both, and then perform a restart. This could be done in a shell or perl script.
