Modelling of 3D fields due to ferritic inserts and test blanket modules in toroidal geometry at ITER

Computations in toroidal geometry are systematically performed for the plasma response to 3D magnetic perturbations produced by ferritic inserts (FIs) and test blanket modules (TBMs) for four ITER

Effects of magnetic ripple on 3D equilibrium and alpha particle confinement in the European DEMO

An assessment of alpha particle confinement is performed in the European DEMO reference design. 3D MHD equilibria with nested flux-surfaces and single magnetic axis are obtained with the VMEC

Protecting ITER walls: fast ion power loads in 3D magnetic field

The fusion alpha and beam ion with steady-state power loads in all four main operating scenarios of ITER have been evaluated by the ASCOT code. For this purpose, high-fidelity magnetic backgrounds

Effect of the European design of TBMs on ITER wall loads due to fast ions in the baseline (15 MA), hybrid (12.5 MA), steady-state (9 MA) and half-field (7.5 MA) scenarios

We assess the effect of the European design of the pebble-bed helium-cooled test blanket modules (TBM) on fast ion power loads on ITER material surfaces. For this purpose, the effect of not only the

ITER fast ion confinement in the presence of the European test blanket module

This paper addresses the confinement of thermonuclear alpha particles and neutral beam injected deuterons in the 15 MA Q = 10 inductive scenario in the presence of the magnetic perturbation caused by

An advection–diffusion model for cross-field runaway electron transport in perturbed magnetic fields

Disruption-generated runaway electrons (RE) present an outstanding issue for ITER. The predictive computational studies of RE generation rely on orbit-averaged computations and, as such, they lack

Effect of plasma response on the fast ion losses due to ELM control coils in ITER

Mitigating edge localized modes (ELMs) with resonant magnetic perturbations (RMPs) can increase energetic particle losses and resulting wall loads, which have previously been studied in the vacuum

Clearing the road for high-fidelity fast ion simulations in full three dimensions

High-energy ions, such as fusion alphas and ions from external heating, can be very sensitive to any non-axisymmetric features in the confining magnetic field due to their collisionless nature. Since



ITER fusion alpha particle confinement in the presence of the European TBMs and ELM coils

A commercial fusion power plant will need tritium breeding to provide its fuel. Tritium is expected to be bred from lithium blankets, and one of the key things to demonstrate in ITER is the

Effects of complex symmetry-breakings on alpha particle power loads on first wall structures and equilibrium in ITER

Within the ITPA Topical Group on Energetic Particles, we have investigated the impact that various mechanisms breaking the tokamak axisymmetry can have on the fusion alpha particle confinement in

ITER edge-localized modes control coils: the effect on fast ion losses and edge confinement properties

The magnetic perturbations due to in-vessel coils, foreseen to mitigate edge-localized modes (ELMs) in ITER, could also compromise the confinement of energetic ions. We simulate the losses of fusion

Fast-ion effects during test blanket module simulation experiments in DIII-D

Fast beam-ion losses were studied in DIII-D in the presence of a scaled mock-up of two test blanket modules (TBM) for ITER. Heating of the protective tiles on the front of the TBM surface was found

ASCOT simulations of fast ion power loads to the plasma-facing components in ITER

The wall loads due to fusion alphas as well as neutral beam injection- and ICRF-generated fast ions were simulated for ITER reference scenario-2 and scenario-4 including the effects of ferritic

The fourth edition has been thoroughly updated and revised to include a new chapter on recursive subdivision, as well as new sections on triangulations and scattered data interpolants, and the disk in the back of the book has been updated to include all of the programs, as the data sets from the text.


Since the tokamak concept gained recognition in 1968, steady progress has been made towards its development into a viable fusion core for a thermonuclear reactor. The paper summarizes the present
