Software package for publication "Analysis of Tidal Accelerations in the Solar System and in Extrasolar Planetary Systems"
This source code can be used to simulate tidal accelerations within systems of celestial bodies (e.g. moon systems around planets, the whole solar system, exosystems). The tidal acceleration vectors between the celestial bodies are calculated for each time step. These are additionally added vectorially to calculate the total tidal acceleration acting on an object and its change during a time step.
The source code must be compiled at least in the C++11-standard together with integration of the library "Eigen" (http://eigen.tuxfamily.org). Via CSV files the physical properties and orbit parameters of the celestial bodies must be read into the simulation. During execution CSV files are created, which contain for each time step the absolute values of the tidal accelerations for each celestial body. The also available Python3 script allows you to display these results in bar graphs.
