Continuing (out of cycle) Project

Center for Gyrokinetic Particle Simulations of Turbulent Transport in Burning Plasmas

The Center for Gyrokinetic Particle Simulations of Turbulent Transport in Burning Plasmas project is a consortium formed in 2004. The goal of this project is to develop gyrokinetic particle simulation codes to carry out simulations of turbulent transport to investigate plasma confinement properties of burning plasmas, such as the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor (ITER). Ultimately the project aims to be able to effectively carry out multiscale integrated simulations (both in time and space) of fusion plasmas using the gyrokinetic particle approach.
