A GEOMETRICAL APPROACH TO EVALUATING THE HEAT FLUX PEAKING FACTOR ON FIRST WALL COMPONENTS

Abstract : In magnetic fusion experiments, a simple technique to evaluate the heat flux on first wall components is a key to controlled plasma surface interaction. The heat flux can be characterized by the peaking factor which is the ratio of the peak heat flux to the average heat flux. The peaking factor can be calculated exactly using simple derivations and standard software tools. This analysis is applied to an Iter class experiment for plasma wall contact during start up phases at 15 MW, in idealised, realistic and misaligned situations. Even though the peaking factors are usually above 10, the peak heat load on the wall remains moderate at a few MW/m².
