(Color online) CTEM-driven total intrinsic torque and volume-integrated turbulence intensity at steady state vs plasma current I p (top-left), and radial profiles of q and dq/dr of the four equilibria used in this scan (top-right); CTEM-driven particle fluxes vs time at a central radial location where dominant CTEM fluctuations are present (upper-middle-left), and steady state electron heat fluxes vs (upper-middle-right); spatio-temporal evolution of spectrum-averaged parallel wavenumber— for two cases with I p = 1.5 MA (lower-middle-left) and I p = 0.75 MA (lower-middle-right); and spatio-temporal evolution of zonal flow shearing rate for I p = 1.5 MA (bottom-left) and I p = 0.75 MA (bottom-right).
(Color online) CTEM-driven total intrinsic torque vs q value averaged over the central core region (upper-left) and the corresponding radial profiles of q and dq/dr for the three equilibria used for these simulations (upper-right), and spatio-temporal evolution of spectrum-averaged for two cases with (lower-left) and (lower-right).
(Color online) CTEM-driven total intrinsic torque vs the radial variation of q averaged over the central core region (top-left), and radial profiles of mean residual stress at steady state (top-right); corresponding radial profiles of q (middle-left) and dq/dr (middle-right) for the three equilibria used for these simulations; spatio-temporal evolution of spectrum-averaged for two cases with averaged dq/dr = 0.9 (bottom-left) and dq/dr = 2.2 (bottom-right).
Ratio of momentum generation rate and heat transport rate vs dq/dr. This is from the same simulations as those of Fig. 5.
Total intrinsic torque vs external magnetic field B vac in CTEM turbulence.
(Color online) Time history of parallel flow (upper-left), electron density (upper-right), and ion temperature (lower-left) at three radial locations, and spatio-temporal evolution of electron temperature (lower-right) illustrating the generic pinch phenomenon in CTEM turbulence. For illustration purpose, three curves for each quantity of , , and at three radial locations are displaced in the direction of the vertical axis. Actually, they all start from zero initially.
