The impact of plasma shaping through magnetic well modifications on the stability of resistive ballooning modes in tokamaks is analysed, also including finite diamagnetic flows. Various limiting cases of the dispersion relation, obtained by matching the averaged ballooning equation across the ideal and resistive layers, are analysed. It is found th…

An important contribution to the mechanical stresses present in the ITER ICH antenna is related to the non-uniform heating of its front section due to RF losses, plasma and charge exchange, and the effects of neutron radiation. As a consequence, intensive convective cooling is necessary to maintain temperature and the related thermally induced s…
