Abstract

THE BURN-UP OF THE 1MEV TRITONS IN DEUTERIUM PLASMAS HAS BEEN MEASURED IN JET FOR VARIOUS PLASMA CONDITIONS. TO INTERPRET THESE MEASUREMENTS THE CONTAINMENT, SLOWING DOWN AND BURN-UP OF FAST TRITONS NEEDS TO BE MODELLED A REASONABLE ACCURACY. THE NUMERICAL CODE SOCRATE HAS BEEN WRITTEN FOR THIS SPECIFIC PURPOSE AND HAS ALREADY BEEN USED FOR THE INTERPRETATION OF THE MEASUREMENTS, GIVING CALCULATED BURN-UP VALUES IN GOOD AGREEMENT WITH EXPERIMENT. MORE RECENTLY A SECOND CODE, HECTOR HAS BEEN ADAPTED TO STUDY THE TRITON BURN-UP PROBLEM. IN THIS PAPER WE COMPARE THE RESULTS FROM THE TWO CODES IN ORDER TO EXCLUDE POSSIBLE ERRORS IN THE NUMERICAL MODELS, TO ASSESS THEIR ACCURACY AND TO STUDY THE SENSITIVITY OF THE CALCULATION TO VARIOUS PHYSICAL EFFECTS. THE TWO CODES ARE DESCRIBED AND CONTRASTED; CALCULATIONS SHOW GOOD AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE TWO.
