Fig. 12


Average collisional velocities in the high inclination γF = 0.78(45°) case between equally (panel 1) and differently sized planetesimals (panel 2). Left panel: 10 km–10 km collisions (green-solid); 1 km–1 km collisions (blue-solid); 100 m–100 m collisions (red-solid). Right panel: 10 km–1 km (green-solid); 10 km–100 m (blue-solid); 1 km–100 m (red-solid). Threshold velocities for catastrophic disruption corresponding to the different size-combinations for the strong aggregates (dashed line) are also shown. Relative velocities have also been calculated using a larger orbit width Δa = 2 × 10-3 AU (dotted lines). Panels 3 and 4: collision count for orbital width Δa = 2 × 10-4 AU and Δa = 2 × 10-3 AU, respectively. The line colours and styles in panels 3 and 4 are as follows: green-solid (10 km–10 km); blue-solid (1 km–1 km); red-solid (100 m–100 m); green-dashed (10 km–1 km); blue-dashed (10 km–100 m); red-dashed (1 km–100 m).

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
