Dust Coagulation and Evolution in Protoplanetary Disks

DustPy is a Python package to simulate the evolution of dust in protoplanetary disks.

DustPy simulates the radial evolution of gas and dust in a protoplanetary disk, involving viscous evolution the the gas disk, advection and diffusion of the dust disk, as well as dust growth by solving the Smoluchowski equation.

Please read the documentation for a detailed description. By using any version of DustPy you agree to these terms of usage.


DustPy can be installed via the Python Package Index

pip install dustpy


DustPy needs a Python3 distribution and a Fortran compiler installed on your system.


Module Reference


DustPy is using the Simframe framework for scientific simulations (Stammler & Birnstiel 2022)


DustPy has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 714769.

DustPy was developed at the University Observatory of the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.
