SIMECA: a Code Dedicated to Active Hot Stars
Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur, Département GEMINI, CNRS UMR 6203, Avenue Copernic, 06130 Grasse, France
Active hot stars are hot stars (Teff ≥ 8000 K) exhibiting emission lines (namely hydrogen lines) and IR excess which both originate in a circumstellar environment. In this paper we present in details the SIMECA (SImulation pour Etoiles Chaudes Actives) code which is the only code freely available to model the gaseous environment of active hot stars. It computes line profiles, Spectral Energy Distributions (SED) and intensity maps, which can be directly compared to high angular resolution observations.
