Our recent numerical simulation of resistive drift wave turbulence in a linear device has shown that the radial inhomogeneity of the neutral density affects azimuthal flow generation by changing the phase structure of the most unstable eigenmodes. Eigenmode analyses show that the mode structure has a complex Bessel-type function shape in the central region of the plasma, and the imaginary part arises from the radial inhomogeneity of the damping term caused by ion-neutral collisions. The amplitude of turbulent stress is proportional to the inhomogeneity under a marginally stable condition. Global structural formation is an important factor for determining the plasma turbulent state, and this result clearly shows that several kinds of radial background distributions, the plasma and neutral densities in this case, can influence the global structures.. |

Global simulations are carried out using a reduced MHD model of drift-interchange mode in helical plasmas, and time series data of 3-D fluctuation fields are produced. It includes localized modes in their rational surfaces, and broad modes spread in the radial direction. Magnitudes of nonlinear couplings from the convective derivative are evaluated in the nonlinear saturated states. The radial profile shows that there exist strong mode excitation near the center, various modes and nonlinear couplings with higher m modes in the middle radius, small number of propagating modes near the edge, which contribute to the pressure profile modification. For the detection of the different features, combination of several diagnostics is necessary.. |

Itoh, Heavy Ion Beam Probe Measurement in Turbulence Diagnostic Simulator, *Plasma Science and Technology*, 13, 3, 326, 2011.03, A numerical measurement module simulating a heavy ion beam probe was developed, and numerical measurements of electrostatic potential and density fluctuations are carried out for 3-D turbulent data generated by a global simulation of drift-interchange mode turbulence in helical plasmas. The deviation between measured and local values is estimated. It is found that the characteristic structures can be detected in spite of the screening effect due to the finite spatial resolution.. |

In this model, ion-neutral collisions strongly stabilize the resistive drift wave, and the formed structure depends on the collision frequency. If the collision frequency is small, modulational coupling of unstable modes generates a zonal flow. On the other hand, if the collision frequency is large, a streamer, which is a localized vortex in the azimuthal direction, is formed. The structure is generated by nonlinear wave coupling and is sustained for a much longer duration than the drift wave oscillation period. This is a minimal model for analyzing the turbulent structural formation mechanism by mode coupling in cylindrical plasmas, and the competitive nature of structural formation is revealed. These turbulent structures affect particle transport.. |
