MAIN MECHANICAL AND THERMAL PROBLEMS OF THE FTU TOKAMAK MACHINE
The FTU Tokamak in order to reach the expected performance will have to operate steadily at high magnetic fields. Its magnet and vacuum chamber will undergo very high stresses due to thermal and electromagnetic loads for a large number of shots. In order to assess the feasibility of these components, numerical codes to compute current, magnetic field and temperature distributions and extensive three dimensional finite element stress analysis have been developed. The main results obtained are illustrated.
