Idealised hydrodynamic simulations of turbulent oxygen-burning shell convection in 4π geometry

Project summary
We investigate convective boundary mixing at the top of an idealised O-burning shell using 3D hydrodynamic simulations.
About the simulation codes
We use the 1D stellar evolution code MESA and 3D hydrodynamic code PPMstar.
