Validation of the Full MHD with Bohm Boundary conditions

Participants : Boniface Nkonga, Guido Huijsmans, Ashish Bhole.

We have implemented Bohm mach condition using penalty boundary integral over open field lines. We have added temperature dependent viscosity and parallel conductivity, Bohm condition on energy flux. The JET configuration has been considered with success to reach the equilibrium with Bohm conditions on the divertor. However, the solution needs to be improved at the separatrix close to the boundary by a proper numerical stabilization. These structures disappear with constant resistivity. First n=10 ballooning mode in JET has been considered and need to be compared to the reduced MHD results. In order to proceed to these comparisons, a model for the reduced model has been derived including modeling of the viscosity. Validations on circular geometries are on going.
