Abstract

The MHD equations which describe a stationary equilibrium in axisymmetric geometry lead to a quasilinear partial differential equation for the flux PSI, one nonlinear and three linear algebraic equations for the mass density rho, the poloidal current J and the two tangential velocity components v-T and v-p, respectively. A fixed boundary finite element code, called CLIO, has been written which solves this set of equations. There are five arbitrary functions of PSI which have to be prescribed.
