Advance the equations for the Fourier coefficients in time using an ODE solver (method of lines). Artan Qerushi (AFRL) FRC modeling overview (July 2014present) January 20th, / 18
8 0D model equations dn e dt dn k dt dn z dt dt e dt = q i n i k=1,z = n e (n k 1 S k 1 n k (S k + α k ) + n k+1 α k+1 ), k = 1, 2,, Z 1 = n e (n Z 1 S Z 1 n Z α Z ), = n k L k (T e ) k=0,z All coefficients S k, α k, L k are functions of T e. NIST (FLYCHK code) provides these coefficients for all the periodic table in the temperature range 0.5 [ev] to 100 [kev]. Have implemented in C++ the coefficients for H, He, O, Ar, Kr and Xe. Little work needed to add other elements if that is needed. Artan Qerushi (AFRL) FRC modeling overview (July 2014present) January 20th, / 18

11 Magnetized plasma closure (Introduction) (ρ j v j ) t = Πj + k R jk ɛ e t = q j Πj: v j + k Q jk indicate terms not related to collisions, R jk represents transfer of momentum between the species j and k due to collisions, q j represents flux of heat due to the temperature gradient T j and Ohmic heating, Π represents the offdiagonal part of the pressure tensor, Q jk represents collisional energy transfer between the species j and k. This term is proportional to the temperature difference T k T j. The purpose of a fluid closure is to provide explicit expressions for R jk, q j, Π and Q jk in terms of n j, v j, T j and the magnetic field strength.

14 Conclusions We have implemented in standalone C++ code The CR data for H, He, O, Ar, Kr and Xe. Magnetized plasma closure for electronionneutral mixture. Applied field modules for the FRC experiment setup including the DC coils and the RMF antenna. The 2D r θ model is currently implemented in modern fortran. A C++ version which uses the SUNDIALS ODE solver suite is being written to be included in our software framework (SMURF). Work on multidimensional fluid models using the Finite Element method and unstructured grids is ongoing and will be reported in the near future.

16 Assumptions of 2D RMF model Frequency condition for current drive ω ci < ω < ω ce. Infinitely long plasma cyclinder lying in a uniform magnetic field. All quantities are assumed independent of axial location z. The ions form a uniformly distributed neutralizing background of fixed, massive positive charges. The plasma resistivity, η, is taken to be a scalar quantity which is constant in time and uniform on space. In particular, η is assumed to be of the form η = m eν ei n e e 2 Electron inertia is neglected; that is it is assumed that ω ω ce, ν ei. The displacement current is neglected. This implies that only systems for which ωr p /c, where r p is the plasma radius, are considered. Artan Qerushi (AFRL) FRC modeling overview (July 2014present) January 20th, / 18
