Vacfield code: computation of the vacuum magnetic field and its first derivatives for various coil types
The VACFIELD code is used to compute the magnetic field of external coils. It determines the vacuum field and its first derivatives in cylindrical co-ordinates on a two- or three-dimensional grid. The conductors are approximated by straight pieces of infinitely thin current filaments. Various coil types of tokamak and stellarator devices are implemented. It is possible to choose between two different data formats of the magnetic field output. One serves as input to the MFBE and GOURDON codes, while the other one is used by the VMEC/NEMEC code.
