Title: Applications of the Miller equilibrium to extend tokamak computational models
Author: Stacey, Weston M.
Abstract: An analytical model for the equilibrium flux surface geometry, widely known as the Miller equilibrium model, has been exploited to improve a variety of simplified tokamak computation models that incorporate an approximate flux surface geometry. Also discussed are improved models for an effective unelongated toroidal plasma representation of elongated flux surfaces; mapping temperature (and density) gradients measured at one poloidal location to other poloidal locations and to an average gradient over the flux surface; interpreting experimental heat diffusivities from local temperature gradients and average conductive heat fluxes; calculating the poloidal distribution of radial conductive heat fluxes; and evaluating the gyroviscous angular momentum transport rate.
