Static compression process of dust aggregates in protoplanetary disks
Planetesimal formation process in protoplanetary disks is a key issue in planet formation. Recently, internal density evolution of dust aggregates with collisional compression has been proposed to solve this problem (Okuzumi et al. 2012). However, other compression processes, which are caused by gas drag or self gravity, have not been considered. Such compression processes may differ from collisional compression processes, and thus it may greatly affect internal density evolution of dust aggregates. Therefore, we investigated static compression processes of porous aggregates by calculating N-body
simulation with considering direct interaction forces (Wada et al. 2007), and we determine the equation of state of porous aggregates.
