Pedestals and feedback in fusion-plasma relevant sandpile models

Bowie, Craig; Hole, Matthew


We present modifications to the sandpile model [Chapman, Phys. Rev. E 62, 1905 (2000)] (Classic Model). A feedback loop is added to the Classic Model, elements of which may have relevance to the behaviour of a fusion plasma. Those elements include variation of the total energy of the system in proportion to a proxy for the Larmor radius, ρ, and resulting variations in mass loss event (MLE) size and waiting times between MLEs. We also show other variants of the Classic Model which produce...[Show more]
