We will confirm this expectation in the following subsection. Bukhari Syed et satoshi.

Here, the distribution is represented by the dust surface density per decade of aggregate mass,. Figure 3 shows the evolution of the total dust surface density. In Figure 4 , the weighted average mass at each time is indicated by the short vertical line.
Shown at the top of the panel is the aggregate radius a. Now we show how porosity evolution affects dust evolution. Here, we solve the evolutionary equation for V r , m Equation 8 simultaneously with that for Equation 1. The left four panels of Figure 5 show how the radial size distribution evolves in the porous aggregation.
However, in later stages, the evolution is significantly different. This occurs because most of the drifting aggregates are captured by aggregates that have already overcome the drift barrier. The fractal growth generally occurs in early growth stages where the impact energy is too low to cause collisional compression, i. In this late stage, the internal density decreases more slowly or is kept at a constant value depending on the orbital radius. We will examine the density evolution in more detail in Section 3.
This suggests that the acceleration is due to the change in the aerodynamical property of the aggregates. In the Stokes regime, the stopping time t s of aggregates increases rapidly with size see Section 2. The decrease in the internal density plays an important role in the growth acceleration. A more rigorous explanation for this will be given in Section 4. As noted in Section 2. To check the validity of using this model, we introduce the projectile mass distribution function Okuzumi et al.
In fact, the projectile mass distribution integrated over 0. This means that the growth of aggregates is indeed dominated by collisions with similar-sized ones as required by the limitation of our porosity model.
With this information, one can analytically estimate the aggregate size at which the fractal growth terminates. Assuming that the collisions mainly occur between aggregates of similar sizes see Section 3. This means that the stopping time of the aggregates is as short as the monomers and is hence given by Epstein's law. Thus, the impact energy is approximated as. Thus, the impact energy is proportional to the mass. Using Equation 24 , the rolling mass is evaluated as.
As shown below, the density histories mentioned above can be directly derived from the porosity change recipe we adopted. In our simulation, the main source of the relative velocity is turbulence.
Using these relations with Equation 30 , we find four regimes for density evolution,. For both cases, Equation 31 predicts flat density evolution. These predictions are in agreement with what we see in Figure In this section, we explain why porous aggregates overcome the radial drift barrier in the inner region of the disk. We do this by comparing the timescale of aggregate growth and radial drift. We assume that dust aggregates grow mainly through collisions with similar-sized aggregates.
As shown in Section 3. The growth rate of the aggregate mass m at the midplane is then given by. Equation 32 can be rewritten in terms of the growth timescale as. Here, we compare t grow with the timescale for the radial drift given by.
Now we focus on the stage at which the radial drift velocity reaches the maximum value, i. We expect growth without significant drift to occur if. Below, we examine in what condition this requirement is satisfied. We consider the Epstein regime first. Inserting this relation into Equation 35 , we obtain. Thus, the porosity of aggregates has no effect on the radial drift barrier within the Epstein regime.
Note that the growth timescale is inversely proportional to the aggregate radius, in contrast to that in the Epstein regime Equation 40 being independent of aggregate properties. It is interesting to note that the speed-up of dust growth occurs even though the maximum collision velocity is the same.
We remark that Stokes' law breaks down when a becomes so large that the particle Reynolds number becomes much larger than unity, as already mentioned in Section 2. We will show in Section 5. These explain our simulation results presented in Section 3. In reality, does not fall below the value given by Equation 47 thin dotted line because of the effect of the gas drag at high particle Reynolds numbers see Section 5.
However, this does not change the location where the growth condition is satisfied. Finally, we remark that a high disk mass i. So far we have shown that the evolution of dust into highly porous aggregates is a key to overcome the radial drift barrier. However, in order to clarify the role of porosity evolution, we have ignored many other effects relevant to dust growth in protoplanetary disks.
In this section, we discuss how the ignored effects would affect dust evolution. In reality, Stokes' law applies only when the particle Reynolds number the Reynolds number of the gas flow around the particle is less than unity, where is the gas—dust relative velocity.
When Re p 1, i. In this subsection, we discuss how this effect affects our conclusion. In the opposite limit, Re p 1, the drag coefficient C D approaches a constant value typically of order unity; e.
Thus, in the Newton regime, the stopping time depends on the particle velocity, unlike in the Stokes regime. In this case, one has to calculate the stopping time and particle velocity simultaneously since the particle velocity in turn depends on the stopping time. In the previous sections, we have ignored the Newton regime to avoid the above-mentioned complexity.
Below, we show that the Newton drag sets the minimum value of Equation 35 for given orbital radius and internal density, which was not taken into account in Section 4. At the midplane, Equation 45 can be rewritten as , where we have used that. Thus, at the midplane, we obtain a relation. If C D reaches a constant, no longer depends on aggregate properties.
Putting this equation into Equation 35 , we have. However, when Re p becomes so large that C D reaches a constant value, no longer decreases with increasing a. Thus, we find that the Newton drag sets the minimum value of. Since the Newton drag regime was ignored in our model, the growth rate of aggregates was overestimated at high Re p. This implies that dust growth is somewhat artificially accelerated in our simulation presented in Section 3.
However, this artifact is not the reason why porous aggregates grow across the radial drift barrier in the simulation. Thus, highly porous aggregates are still able to break through the radial drift barrier even if Newton's law at high particle Reynolds numbers is taken into account.
In the numerical simulation presented in Section 3. Therefore, the deviation from Stokes' law at high particle Reynolds numbers has little effect on the successful breakthrough of the radial drift barrier observed in our simulation. Here, we discuss the validity of this assumption.
Frictional backreaction generally modifies the equilibrium velocities of both gas and dust. The equilibrium velocities in the presence of the backreaction are derived by Tanaka et al. Thus, the dimensionless quantities X and Y measure the significance of the frictional backreaction. However, it is found that the effect of backreaction is so small that the resulting dust evolution is hardly distinguishable from that presented in Section 3.
The above result can be understood in the following way. The dotted curves are the velocities when the fractional backreaction is neglected. Furthermore, the effect on the differential drift velocity is even less significant because the decreases in the inward velocities nearly cancel out.
Therefore, the frictional backreaction from dust to gas hardly affects the drift-induced collision velocity between dust aggregates. This means that the equilibrium gas—dust motion as described by Equations 6 — 18 is unstable against perturbation. The clumping proceeds in a runaway manner i. As seen in Section 3. These aggregates likely trigger the streaming instability and can even experience runaway collapse.
In order to address this issue, we will need to simulate coagulation and streaming instability simultaneously. In this study, we have assumed that all aggregate collisions lead to sticking. This assumption breaks down if the collisional velocity is so high that the collision involves fragmentation and erosion.
If the mass loss due to fragmentation and erosion is significant, it acts as an obstacle to planetesimal formation the so-called fragmentation barrier; e.
Here, we discuss the validity and possible limitations of this assumption. Recent N -body simulations predict that very fluffy aggregates made of 0. If such strong turbulence exists, fragmentation becomes no more negligible even for icy aggregates. Besides, the collision velocity can become higher than the above estimate when a large aggregate collides with much smaller ones, since the collision velocity is then dominated by the radial drift motion.
First, small dust particles stabilize MRI-driven turbulence because they efficiently capture ionized gas particles and thereby reduce the electric conductivity of the gas e. In addition, small fragments enhance the optical thickness of the disk, and thus reduce the temperature of the gas in the interior of the disk given that turbulence is stabilized there. Since the radial drift velocity is proportional to the gas temperature, this leads to the reduction of the drift-induced collision velocity.
These effects may help the growth of large aggregates beyond the fragmentation barrier. The size of monomers is another key factor. It is suggested both theoretically Chokshi et al.
Thus, inclusion of larger monomers generally leads to a decrease in the sticking efficiency. However, it is not obvious whether aggregates composed of multi-sized interstellar particles are mechanically weaker or stronger than aggregates considered in this study. The net effect of multi-sized monomers needs to be clarified by future numerical as well as laboratory experiments.
Another issue concerning the growth efficiency of icy aggregates arises from sintering. Sintering is the redistribution of ice molecules on solid surfaces due to vapor transport and other effects. In this process, ice molecules tend to fill dipped surfaces i. In an aggregate composed of equal-sized icy monomers, this process leads to growth of the monomer contact areas Sirono b and consequently to enhancement of the aggregate's mechanical strength such as F roll.
Furthermore, if the monomers have different sizes, sintering leads to the evaporation of smaller monomers having higher positive curvature , which may result in the breakup of the aggregate Sirono a. Therefore, sintering can prevent the growth of icy aggregates near the snow line where sintering proceeds rapidly.
This is comparable to the timescale on which submicron-sized icy particles grow into macroscopic objects in this region see Figure 7. However, if the disk is passive and optically thick Kusaka et al. Moreover, the required high optical depth can be provided by tiny fragments that would result from the sintering-induced fragmentation itself.
Consistent treatment of the two competing effects is necessary to precisely know the location where sintering is really problematic. To summarize, whether icy aggregates survive catastrophic fragmentation and erosion crucially depends on the environment of the protoplanetary disks as well as on the size distribution of the aggregates and constituent monomers. However, we emphasize that icy aggregates can survive within a realistic range of disk conditions as explained above.
This will be done in our future work. Aggregates observed in our simulation have very low internal densities. This is a direct consequence of the porosity model we adopted Equation Here, we discuss the validity and limitations of our porosity model. As mentioned in Section 2. In our simulation, dust growth is indeed dominated by collisions with similar-sized aggregates see Section 3. By contrast, the neglect of offset collisions may cause underestimation of the porosity increase, since the impact energy is spent for stretching rather than compaction at offset collisions Wada et al.
On the other hand, the formation of very low density dust aggregates is apparently inconsistent with the existence of massive and much less porous aggregates in our solar system. Since our porosity model does not explain the formation of such large and less porous "aggregates," some compaction mechanisms have yet to be determined. One possibility is static compression due to gas drag and self-gravity. Although static compression is ignored in our porosity model, it can contribute to the compaction of aggregates that are massive or decoupled from the gas motion.
However, for future reference, it will be useful to estimate here the static pressures due to gas drag and self-gravity. The ram pressure, the gas drag force per unit area, is given by , where C D is the drag coefficient and is the gas—dust relative speed see Section 5.
Thus, static compression due to self-gravity may be a key to fill the gap between our high porous aggregates and more compact planetesimal-mass bodies in the solar system. We have investigated how the porosity evolution of dust aggregates affects their collisional growth and radial inward drift. We have applied a porosity model based on N -body simulations of aggregate collisions Suyama et al.
This porosity model allows us to study the porosity change upon collision for a wide range of impact energies. As a first step, we have neglected the mass loss due to collisional fragmentation and instead focused on dust evolution outside the snow line, where aggregates are mainly composed of ice and hence catastrophic fragmentation may be insignificant Wada et al.
Our findings are summarized as follows. We remark that the quick growth in the Stokes regime was also observed in recent coagulation simulations by Birnstiel et al. What we have clarified in this study is that porosity evolution indeed enables the breakthrough of the radial drift barrier at much larger orbital radii.
The porosity evolution can even influence the evolution of solid bodies after planetesimal formation. It is commonly believed that the formation of protoplanets begins with the runaway growth of a small number of planetesimals due to gravitational focusing e. The runaway growth requires a sufficiently high gravitational escape velocity relative to the collision velocity.
The size of the "initial" planetesimals can even determine the mass distribution of asteroids in the main belt Morbidelli et al. As we pointed out in Section 5. To precisely determine when it occurs is beyond the scope of this work, but it will thus be important to understand the later stages of planetary system formation. We will address this in future work. The authors thank the anonymous referee for useful comments. It can be analytically shown Birnstiel et al.
