The impact of resonance magnetic perturbations (RMP) on the structure of the edge transport barrier has been studied. A new model for the density pump-out mechanism during the stochastization of the plasma edge is proposed. The observed phenomena are explained as a result of the impact of the ambipolar electric field, which is modified during RMP, …


A comparison is presented of measured and simulated parallel flows in the low field side scrape-off layer of MAST Ohmic shots. Simulations with B2SOLPS5.0 code reproduce the experimentally observed co-current rotation direction. The absolute values of the simulated Mach number are smaller than those of the measured ones; the difference might reach …
