SADHANA: A Flexible Block-Structured AMR Framework for Astrophysical Simulations and Beyond
Efficient simulation of multi-scale astrophysical phenomena can be achieved through the application of Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR). However, existing AMR libraries often come with usability challenges and limited flexibility. In this presentation, I will introduce SADHANA, a newly developed, in-house block-structured AMR framework designed specifically for astrophysical applications. I will offer an insightful overview of the framework, emphasizing its innovative attributes concerning load balancing, grid connectivity, and boundary delineations. Through demonstrations of hydrodynamic and magnetohydrodynamic test cases, I will showcase the current capabilities of SADHANA. Additionally, I will provide a concise account of the ongoing and prospective advancements within the framework's development pipeline.
