Functional Description

Jorek-Django is a new version of the JOREK software, for MHD modelling of plasma dynamic in tokamaks geometries. The numerical approximation is derived in the context of finite elements where 3D basic functions are tensor products of 2D basis functions in the poloidal plane by 1D basis functions in the toroidal direction. More specifically, Jorek uses curved bicubic isoparametric elements in 2D and a spectral decomposition (sine, cosine) in the toroidal axis. Continuity of derivatives and mesh alignment to equilibrium surface fluxes are enforced. Resulting linear systems are solved by the PASTIX software developed at Inria-Bordeaux.
