B2-EIRENE simulation of ASDEX and ASDEX-Upgrade scrape-off layer plasmas
The 2D multifluid edge code B2 coupled with the 3D neutral gas Monte Carlo code EIRENE is being used for edge interpretation and model validation on the axisymmetric poloidal divertor experiments ASDEX and ASDEX-Upgrade. For this purpose B2 was significantly improved, especially by a fully implicit treatment of the topological cuts appearing in X-point configurations, and a reasonably accurate handling of inclined target plates. A fast, automatic grid generator has been developed, which allows direct implementation of experimental MHD equilibria into B2-EIRENE. Typical ASDEX and ASDEX-Upgrade simulations are presented and discussed.
