MACH2 is a 2½-dimensional Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulation code. It computes all three components of the magnetic field and velocity, and assumes only that derivatives of all quantities are zero in the transverse direction, whether in cylindrical or Cartesian symmetry. Its multiblock boundary-fitted coordinate architecture makes it possible to simulate a variety of complex geometries and boundary conditions. Physical effects simulated include:

    MACH2's output capabilities include

    MACH2 simulations can be restarted from its binary restart file. Parameters can be changed at specified times from the input file. Portions of the problem domain can be dropped or new portions added at any time.
