Turbulent momentum pinch of diamagnetic flows in a tokamak

Abstract

The diamagnetic flow due to the radial pressure and temperature gradients and the E × B flow due to the radial electric field induce different turbulent momentum fluxes in a tokamak. As a result, when the diamagnetic and E × B flows cancel giving zero net toroidal rotation, there will still be finite momentum transport. This may be particularly important… (More)
