24th International Conference on Computing in High Energy and Nuclear Physics, Adelaide, Australia, 4-8 November 2019

Access to both High Throughput Computing (HTC) and High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities is vitally important to the fusion community, not only for plasma modelling but also for advanced engineering and design, materials research, rendering, uncertainty quantification and advanced data analytics for engineering operations. The computing requi…

Edge localised modes (ELMs) are magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) instabilities that drive filamentary plasma eruptions in high confinement tokamak discharges [1]. Gaining an improved understanding of ELMs is important [2]; in future fusion reactors such as ITER, ELM heat fluxes will need to be limited to ensure durability of divertor materials [3]. A new…

During edge localised modes (ELMs) high heat fluxes are incident on divertor targets, which future fusion devices will not withstand [1]. A solution to reduce the heat fluxes could be the new Super-X divertor, which will be tested on the MAST-U tokamak. The divertor has an increased connection length, magnetic flux expansion and is designed to r…
