Within the DEMO first wall 3-D shape design activity the first study of the effect of misalignment has started. Such assessments have been conducted in the past for ITER and penalty factor maps have been created; this route could be a feasible approach in the case of DEMO wall design also. This paper details the first set of computational tests tha…

Within the framework of EUROfusion DEMO First Wall and limiter design activities, the protection of the First Wall against power deposition peaks is being considered. During steady-state operation, the radiative power from the plasma could be considered uniformly spread on plasma-facing components. However, the presence of openings (i.e. g…

Nuclear fusion, the process by which the Sun generates energy, is proposed as one solution to secure the future of global energy supply. If successful it will provide an unlimited source of clean energy. Probably the most promising approach to harnessing fusion for energy production is that of the Tokamak device, a magnetic confinement device of to…
