In order to calculate accurately edge conditions in a tokamak plasma, a number of fluid and neutral codes have been used based on Monte Carlo techniques. In this work the plasma fluid code B2 and the neutrals Monte Carlo code EIRENE are used together. The possibility of modelling time-dependent phenomena including the proper time dependent behaviour of the neutrals opens up areas of model validation. Transitory occurrences in the plasma will give a better indication of edge transport than can be obtained by analysis of equilibrium scenarios alone.
