Effect of poloidal density variation on parallel vis- cosity for large Mach numbers

Abstract

Parallel viscosity 〈B · ∇ ·Πi〉 as a function of radial electric field Er (or, equivalently, non equilibrium poloidal rotation) in a tokamak is studied using a 5D (3D in configuration space and 2D in velocity space) Monte Carlo particle following code. It is shown that including the poloidal density variation changes the qualitative behavior of the solution… (More)
