Abstract

This symposium is the tenth in a biennial series which concentrates on engineering aspects of fusion research. It was conducted in five parallel sessions (4 oral, l poster) over 3 days. The topics covered are: Magnetic and mechanical analysis; vacuum and first wall technology; plasma engineering; tritium and chemical systems; control, instrumentation and data handling; computerized control and data systems; plasma heating systems; magnets and coil engineering; supraconductor development; quality assurance; experimental - diagnostic systems; energy storage, switching and supply; future and upgrade fusion reactors; engineering problems of future reactors; design - operation of large fusion reactors; health safety and environment; inertial confinement fusion; driver - target technology; remote maintenance and handling. This report discusses these topics under headings: engineering of present plasma physics (large tokamak experiments; tokamak experiments being constructed; stellarator experiments; mirror machine experiments; plasma heating systems; vacuum and first wall; superconducting magnets; electrical power systems; control and instrumentation systems); and: next generation devices/reactors (next generation experiments; experimental reactors; power reactors). In parallel with the scientific presentations, a fusion engineering show featured a diversity of products and systems from 28 different industrial companies.
