Abstract

CR Propa is a public astrophysical simulation framework for studying propagation and interaction physics of primary and secondary cosmic ray particles. We have incorporated particle acceleration within CR Propa and run a series of consistency tests to regenerate classic cases such as that of Diffusive Shock Acceleration or first order Fermi Acceleration. This has enabled us to investigate the nuances of acceleration-region geometry, the process of particle acceleration, the role of scattering centres and verify various theoretical predictions as well to a great detail. In future, this development will allow incorporation of various loss mechanisms, production of secondaries within the simulation model quite easily due to pre-existing capabilities of CR Propa.
