The recently developed linear magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) eigenvalue TWIST-R code was used to study resistive MHD plasma stability using a variety of different inner layer models. The TWIST-R code is based on the fully toroidal resistive energy principle. The code uses two projections of the plasma displacement (radial and tangential) and can treat 2-dimensional toroidal plasma configurations surrounded by a vacuum region and an ideal conducting wall. Benchmark calculations were carried out between the TWIST-R code and the published benchmark case with the MARS and PEST-3 codes.
