dc.description.abstractA neoclassical theory of gyroviscous radial momentum transport and poloidal and toroidal rotation has been compared with experiment in DIII-D discharges in different confinement regimes, with a range of neutral beam powers and with co- and counter-injection, and with various types of dominant impurity species present. Calculated central toroidal rotation velocities and momentum confinement times agreed with experiment over a wide range of these conditions, with one notable exception in which a drift correction may be needed to reduce the gyroviscous toroidal force. Radial distributions of toroidal rotation velocities and radial electric field, calculated using the radial distribution of toroidal angular momentum input density, agreed with measured distributions.en
