We perform three-dimensional hydrodynamic simulations of aspherical core-collapse supernovae, focusing on the matter mixing in SN 1987A. The impacts of four progenitor (pre-supernova) models and parameterized aspherical explosions are investigated. The four pre-supernova models include a blue supergiant (BSG) model based on a slow-merger scenario developed recently for the progenitor of SN 1987A (Urushibata et al. 2018). The others are a BSG model based on a single-star evolution and two red supergiant (RSG) models. Among the investigated explosion (simulation) models, a model with the binary merger progenitor model and an asymmetric bipolar-like explosion, which invokes a jetlike explosion, best reproduces constraints on the mass of high-velocity Ni-56, as inferred from the observed [Fe ii] line profiles. The advantage of the binary merger progenitor model for the matter mixing is the flat and less extended rho r(3) profile of the C+O core and the helium layer, which may be characterized by the small helium core mass. From the best explosion model, the direction of the bipolar explosion axis (the strongest explosion direction) and the neutron star (NS) kick velocity and direction are predicted. Other related implications and future prospects are also given.
