This paper treats some fundamental and practical aspects of interval estimation of the prospective thermal H-mode confinement time in ITER.

Some basic definitions of an interval estimate are given and a summary analysis is presented of log-linear and some log non-linear confinement scalings, based on the ELMy and ELM-free log-linear scalings based on DB2 are expressed, insofar as possible, in (profile-averaged) dimensionless plasma physical variables and compared with the results from dimensionless similarity experiments. .
