Schematic diagram of a steady-state vapor cloud with a boiling duston surface (r=r0) at constant T0 = 3000 K and P0 = 1 bar. Adiabatic expansion of the vapor cloud ends at r 100r0, where its pressure becomes equivalent to that of the disk gas (assumed 10 −5 bar) and a whole condensation occurs as shown in gray belt. The abscissa is in log scale except r<r0. Jet-droplets, shown in filled circle, eject from the duston surface and may grow in size by recondensation of the vapor and by incorporation of condensed particles on their way out
