Stellar wind fluid simulations

Project: 
Stellar winds create a bubble of low density ionized gas around stars. These cavities or Astrospheres can be simulated using magneto-hydrodynamic models. In this project the student will use an existing model and run simulations on our local cluster. These simulations will model the out blowing stellar wind (fluid) which interacts with the surrounding interstellar medium.
