Abstract : TURF development has been ongoing at AFRL/RQRS since late 2011 and has reached a level of development and testing where the core data-structures, interface, and select operators are ready to be used by external collaborators familiar with plasma physics and c++ .To facilitate bringing these collaborators up to speed in writing modules for TURF, the TURF Infrastructure Release (TURF-IR) has the capabilities in place to demonstrate kinetic and fluid simulations, including several example input files to provide convenient starting points for the development of additional physics capabilities. Though the framework has been designed in part to facilitate the creation of modules that replicate the functionality of Coliseum/HPHall, it must be emphasized that the TURF-IR is intended to stimulate academic collaboration and does not provide equivalent real-world capabilities to the Coliseum/HPHall suite [1]-[3]. As such, this software by itself cannot be used to design or analyze real systems.
