An innovative divertor concept for a thermonuclear fusion reactor is being studied at the Institute for Advanced Materials of the JRC. The divertor is made from a single material, an ultra-high thermal conductivity carbon fibre reinforced graphite (CFC) composite, using helium gas as coolant. On examination of the new divertor concept, several numerical calculations are necessary to investigate the influence of the various parameters to be optimised. In this paper a new numerical procedure is presented, which was developed to avoid a complete 3D-calculation.
