GW signals (h+D in units of cm, where D is the distance of the source) for a fewexamples from the 2D GR model set of Dimmelmeier et al [108]. The models shown here werecomputed with the Shen EOS [135, 136] and employ 1D presupernova models of [137], spanningthe progenitor mass range from 11.2 M (s11) to 40 M (s40). The models were set up withprecollapse central angular velocities !c,ifrom 1.5 rad s− 1to 11 rad s− 1. For details of therotational setup, see [108]. Model E20A uses a 20-M presupernova model that was evolved by[138] with a 1D prescription for rotation. Note the generic shape of the waveforms, exhibitingone pronounced spike at core bounce and a subsequent ring down. Very rapid precollapse rotation(!c,i! 6 rad s− 1; models s20A3O12 and s40A2O13 in this plot) results in a significant slow-down of core bounce, leading to a lower-amplitude and lower-frequency GW burst. The GW signaldata are available for download from [126].Table 1. Summary of the GW signal characteristics of rotating iron core collapse and corebounce based on the waveforms of Dimmelmeier et al [108]. All models exhibit type-I dynamicsand waveform morphology and can be organized into three distinct groups based primarily ontheir precollapse central angular velocity !c,i. |hmax| is the maximum gravitational-wave strainamplitude (scaled to 10 kpc) at bounce, EGWis the energy radiated away in gravitational waves,fpeakis the frequency at which the GW energy spectrum dEGW/df peaks, and "f50is the frequencyinterval centered about fpeakthat contains 50% of EGW. Note that fmaxused by Dimmelmeier et alis the peak of the GW signal
