Simulations of ELMs using the FEMHD Finite Element Reduced MHD Code
H. R. Strauss

The 3D FEMHD code is applied to the study of ELMs.

Figure 1: Time evolution of a 3D MHD simulation of tokamak edge pressure driven instability. On the left are electric potential (flow streamlines) and on the right is the pressure. Both are shown at constant toroidal angle, at time t = 60 Outflow begins to the outboard divertor.
