The PBX-M experiment, with its close-fitting conducting plasma, is used to test understanding of resistive wall mode stabilisation by plasma rotation. The NOVA-W code is run using the actual geometry of the PBX-M passive shell system, including gaps, and results compared with those obtained assuming a poloidally continuous wall. Modifications to the code are described which will allow the incorporation of sheared toroidal plasma flow.
