Abstract Text:
The Interfacing Group of the Plasma Science and Innovation Center
(PSI-Center, http://www.psicenter.org) facilitates simulations of
collaborating Innovative Confinement Concept (ICC) experiments. This
includes helping set up meshes for simulations of experiments, assisting
in comparison of simulations with experimental data, acquiring and
disseminating information about simulations to PSI-Center computational
groups, and acting as a conduit of information between experiments.
Present collaborating experiments include the Bellan Plasma Group
(Cal-Tech), FRX--L (Los Alamos National Laboratory), HIT-SI (Univ of
Wash - UW), MBX (Univ of Texas-Austin), MST, Pegasus (Univ of
Wisc-Madison), PHD (UW), SSPX (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory),
SSX (Swarthmore College), TCS (UW), and ZaP (UW). The Interfacing Group
also administers a local development computational cluster and network.
PSI-Center 3-D resistive MHD codes include NIMROD
(http://www.nimrodteam.org) and MH4D. Ten of the eleven collaborating
experiments have simulations running, with the remaining experiment
gridded and ready to run. Results from NIMROD runs, and improved
numerical diagnostics and data visualization for collaborating
experiments will be presented.
