Bistable turbulent transport in fusion plasmas with rotational shear

Abstract:

Turbulent transport is a major limiting factor for the energy yield of magnetic- confinement fusion experiments. Turbulence is driven by gradients in the profiles of equilibrium plasma parameters, and it can be regulated by the presence of sheared flows. Direct numerical simulations of turbulent transport are challenging because of the broad range of temporal and spatial scales characterising fusion plasmas. In this thesis, a novel algorithm is developed to include an externally imposed, m...
