Momentum and particle balance and neoclassical viscosity were applied to calculate the radial profile of toroidal rotation in several DIII-D [J. Luxon, Nucl. Fusion, 42, 614 (2002)] discharges in a variety of energy confinement regimes (Low-mode, Low-mode with Internal Transport Barrier, Highmode, and High-mode with Quiescent Double Barrier). Calculated toroidal rotation velocities were found to over-predict measured values most in the center—by factors of 1.5 to 3--with the over-prediction generally decreasing with increasing radius, for the L, H and ITB mode shots, but the single impurity species approximation could not properly model the multiple Ni and Cu charge states in the QDB shots.
