3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The code computes the stationary radial profiles for each impurity stage of ionization and/or their time evolution, taking into account diffusion, ionization and recombination processes occuring in each point of the plasma of a tokamak discharge.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The system of partial differential equations representing the transport equations for the density of the impurity ions in each ionization stage is solved using the cubic B-spline approximation of the unknown functions. The time evolution is determined by a predictor-corrector algorithm.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

The tokamak plasma is assumed to be axisymmetric and to have a circular meridional cross section.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

The main computational sequence of the program consisting in loading the matrix of the system and finding the solution needs about 1 s.
IAEA0943/01
The test case has been run by NEA-DB on a CDC CYBER 830 computer in 500 seconds of CPU time.

7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

Due to the uncertainties in the physical theory of impurity diffusion, the code is specially structured to allow an easy implementation of any new transport model. The formulae of the rates of the atomic processes can be modified as well. The code provides the adaptation of the necessary  input information and can use different types of boundary conditions.
