We discuss results from simulations of black hole formation in failing core‐collapse supernovae performed with the code GR1D, a new open‐source Eulerian spherically‐symmetric general‐relativistic hydrodynamics code. GR1D includes rotation in an approximate way (1.5D) comes with multiple finite‐temperature nuclear equations of state (EOS), and treats neutrinos in the post‐core‐bounce phase via a 3‐flavor leakage scheme and a heating prescription. We chose the favored ‐variant of the Lattimer & Swesty (1990) EOS and present collapse calculations using the progenitor models of Limongi & Chieffi (2006). We show that there is no direct (or “prompt”) black hole formation in the collapse of ordinary massive stars present first results from black hole formation simulations that include rotation.
