The 2D scrape-off-layer turbulence code (nSOLT) includes 1D Boltzmann neutral-plasma interactions, a model of divertor recycling (introduced here), and a fixed source of plasma concentrated at the core-side boundary. 1) Neutral injection in the far-SOL is accomplished by specifying the density of Franck-Condon distributed neutrals streaming in from…

This paper presents a numerical investigation of isolated filament dynamics in a simulation geometry representative of the scrape-off layer (SOL) of the Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak (MAST) previously studied in [N.R.Walkden, Plasma Phys. Control. Fusion, 55 (2013) 105005]. This paper focuses on the evolution of filament cross-sections at the ou…
