Orbital Parameters

The &orbit namelist group defines orbital parameters, as follows:

Omega_orb (default 1)

Orbital angular frequency

Omega_orb_units (default 'NULL')

Units of Omega_orb; one of:

  • 'NONE' : Dimensionless angular frequency

  • 'HZ' : Linear frequency in Hz[1]

  • 'UHZ' : Linear frequency in \(\mu\)Hz[1]

  • 'RAD_PER_SEC' : Angular frequency in radians per second[1]

  • 'CYC_PER_DAY' : Linear frequency in cycles per day[1]

  • 'CRITICAL' : Fraction of the Roche critical rate[1]

q (default 1)

Ratio of secondary mass to primary mass

e (default 0)

Orbital eccentricity

tag_list (default '', which matches all)

Comma-separated list of &tide tags to match
