I Where to find full core-to-surface profiles of stars?

  1. May 18, 2017 #1
    I need to run some computations using an initial star. I could evolve one using MESA but it'd be very convenient if I could download a ready made profile/model of a star which details things like mass, dens, temp, etc, from core to surface. I've googled for a long time but I just keep getting isochrones and evolutionary tracks. Anyone know of a good site/database?

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.

    Have you checked for models provided for asteroseismology?
    Jørgen Christensen-Dalsgaard relies heavily on these models; perhaps searching
    pages on his site or research in particular will uncover what you need?

    It looks like he is also using MESA, though...
