Abstract

This paper describes non-linear numerical simulations of ideal internal kink modes in cylindrical geometry with a flat central q profile as a model for the rapid sawtooth collapse seen in large Tokamaks. The resulting plasma motion is consistent with that obtained experimentally from X-ray tomographic reconstruction. Attention is drawn to the effects of limited poloidal resolution in this diagnostic.
