Field aligned expansion of particle clouds in magnetically confined plasmas : A Lagrangian model
A 1-D time-dependent numerical model has been developed for describing the B-parallel expansion of the ablated pellet material in fusion experiments. The hydrodynamic part of the model includes, as well as the usual conservation equations, finite rate ionisation processes and energy transport by collisional depletion of the flux carried by incident plasma particles, and is operational. The computed expansion rates are in agreement with experimental observations.
