[Mesa-users] Heavy rotation in massive stars

hi amar,

i suspect the issue is the same as in the recently posted


that is, insufficient timestep resolution to observe the initial imposed rotation profile evolve.

The model could successfully evolve up to the desired stage. Just to check if the rotation has been implemented correctly or not, I plotted "surf_avg_omega_div_omega_crit" against "star_age" when the run has finished inlist_to_zams.  From the attached plot, I could see that the "surf_avg_omega_div_omega_crit'' has almost never touched the value of 1.0!

Also, Is it because the "surf_avg_omega_div_omega_crit"  represent the average value of "omega_div_omega_crit" at the surface? I am using satisfactory temporal and spatial resolution by setting :  time_delta_coeff = 0.8, varcontrol_target   = 1d-3, mesh_delta_coeff = 0.7, and mesh_delta_coeff_for_highT = 0.9.
