The VP database provides access to numerical results obtained via a 1D Solar Wind hydrodynamical
code named VP which computes the density, bulk speed, ion and electron temperatures
and pressures, as well as the wave pressure.
The numerical domain extends from the photosphere at T=6000K up to 30 solar radii for fast calculations, but
can be extended to larger distances.
The main control parameters are the mechanical heat flux and the magnetic field expansion rate.
A graphic calculator for the standard isothermal wind is available
This page provides the ability to plot or retrieve calculation results listed below in the drop-down lists.
Runs on demand are also proposed. (see details)
