• Calculation of SOL and Divertor Plasma Properties 

      Stacey, Weston M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008)
      A complex variety of interacting phenomena determine the properties of the plasma in the scrape-off layer (SOL) and divertor of a tokamak. These phenomena have been modeled in, two-dimensional plasma edge codes, which ...
    • Comparison of the Theoretical and Experimental Heat Diffusivities in the DIII-D Edge plasma 

      Stacey, Weston M. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008)
      Predictions of theoretical models for ion and electron heat diffusivity have been compared against experimentally inferred values of the heat diffusivity profile in the edge plasma of two H-mode and one L-mode discharge ...
    • Implementation of the GTNEUT 2D Neutrals Transport Code for Routine DIII-D Analyses 

      Stacey, Weston M.; Rognlien, Thomas D.; Groebner, Richard J.; Friis, Zachary Ward (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008)
      The Georgia Tech Neutral Transport (GTNEUT) code is being implemented to provide a tool for routine analysis of the effects of neutral atoms on edge phenomena in DIII-D. GTNEUT can use an arbitrarily complex two-dimensional ...
