Numerical calculation of ion runaway distributions
Paper in proceedings, 2015

Numerical solver of the 2D ion Fokker-Planck equation has been presented, and its usefulness demonstrated in investigating the conditions required for ion runaway in cold and hot tokamak plasmas. It is shown that Alfvénic activity observed in disruption experiments are unlikely to be explained by the runaway mechanism alone.
