A global simulation code is developed to study the ICRF heating combining two global simulation codes: a full wave field solver, TASK/WM, and a drift kinetic equation solver, GNET. The both codes can treat a 3-D magnetic configuration based on the MHD equilibrium by VMEC code. The developed code is applied to the ICRF minority heating in a simple circular(More)
A model of the neutral transport in tokamaks has been developed suitable for a one-dimensional transport code, TASK/TX. The model consists of the one-dimensional diffusion equations for slow, thermal and halo neutrals, which are simultaneously solved together with two-fluid equations and Maxwell’s equation. The behavior of the slow neutrals is easily(More)
Characteristics of toroidal rotation pro�les in tokamak plasmas are studied under the in�uence of fast-ion losses due to a toroidal �eld (TF) ripple by using a one-dimensional multi-�uid transport code, TASK/TX. When a neutral beam (NB) is injected into a plasma, a part of fast ions is lost due to the effect of the TF ripple. The radial current then �ows(More)
INTRODUCTION We aim to elucidate the effect of spatial resolution of three-dimensional cine phase contrast magnetic resonance (3D cine PC MR) imaging on the accuracy of the blood flow analysis, and examine the optimal setting for spatial resolution using flow phantoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS The flow phantom has five types of acrylic pipes that represent(More)
PURPOSE Since film processors used for screen-film systems have been decreasing recently, it is becoming difficult to develop duplicating film (Dup film) used conventionally. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of the method of duplicating film using a computed radiography (CR) system. MATERIALS AND METHODS The process of duplicating(More)
The modeling of the steady-state ITER scenarios is reviewed, as a subject of common work of the ITPA-SSO group. Focus is made not only on the basic physics issues, resulting from theory and experiments, but also on the difficulties and the needs of integrated modeling. Specific issues connected with high bootstrap fraction in the long pulse operation are(More)
The purpose of this investigation was to analyze three-dimensional images of the optic nerve obtained by magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) in cases of anterior communicating artery aneurysm and craniopharingioma. Four ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysms, five non-ruptured anterior communicating artery aneurysms and two craniopharingiomas(More)
