Fluid descriptions of externally heated tokamak plasmas

Qu, Zhisong

Description

External heating methods such as neutral beam injection (NBI) and ion cyclotron resonance heating (ICRH) generate a large amount of fast ions in tokamak plasmas. The widely implemented MHD single fluid theory with isotropic pressure is no longer sufficient to capture the physics of such plasmas. Despite the shortcoming of a fluid theory, such as the fluid closure problem and the lack of wave-particle interactions, the use of a fluid description in a tokamak...[Show more]
