Abstract We describe the details of 3 + 1 dimensional relativistic hydrodynamic code for the simulations of quark–gluon/hadron matter expansion in ultra-relativistic heavy ion collisions. The code solves the equations of relativistic viscous hydrodynamics in the Israel–Stewart framework. With the help of ideal–viscous splitting, we keep the ability to solve the equations of ideal hydrodynamics in the limit of zero viscosities using a Godunov-type algorithm. Milne coordinates are used to treat the pred...
