16-20 Apr 2018 Aix-Marseille University, 100 rue longue des capucins, 13001 Marseille (France)

Main Objective

The main objective of this working session is to provide a discussion platform for current modelling and development activities across the participating Work Packages and Projects. The emphasis is on identifying open issues, urgent near- and midterm requirements and possible collaborations and proposals for supporting experiments within EUROfusion.


Plasma boundary properties, material erosion & migration, fuel retention and formation of mixed materials in a tokamak device are closely linked. The description of the underlying processes within a self-consistent model is the main subject of current code development and validation. Code validation and interpretation of experiments by modelling are part of the programme of EUROfusion Work Packages (WPs) JET1, MST1, PFC, CD, PMI, and ADC as well as different Enabling Research projects (ENR). This working session aims at exchanging information and knowledge between the participating WPs and ENR projects on scrape-off layer (SOL), edge and plasma-wall interaction (PWI) modelling and their interfaces as well as discussing current key issues for advancing the modelling work across the different WPs and ENR projects. Particular emphasis will be put on scenarios encountered in devices with an all-metal wall configuration. Future benchmarking experiments and code development e.g. regarding implementation of missing physics and extension of the computational domain will also be discussed.

The program can be found here.


The host, Aix-Marseille University, France, will provide the meeting at "Ilôt Bernard Du Bois", 100 rue des capucins 13001 Marseille, and will organize a pool of pre-booked rooms in the Golden Tulip Marseille Euromed hotel, located within a walking distance from the meeting room (less than 20 minutes). We encourage all the participants to join the common dinners which have traditionally been an integral part of the meeting.
