Applications of sandpile algorithms to modelling edge localised mode phenomenology in magnetically confined fusion plasmas

Bowie, Craig


Understanding the behaviour of edge localised modes (ELMs) is of critical significance in fusion plasma research. Simple sandpile models can provide information about the behaviour of complex systems, without incorporating all of the detailed physics which may be included in a fully featured model. Here, the sandpile model developed by Chapman (S.C. Chapman, Phys. Rev. E 62, 1905 (2000)) is employed to study aspects of ELMing behaviour. Discrete waiting times between sandpile avalanches are...[Show more]
