Applications of SOLEDGE-2D code to complex SOL configurations and analysis of Mach probe measurements

A series of experiments dedicated to the determination of the ballooning nature of the edge and SOL transport has been achieved on Tore Supra and , proposing a quantitative characterization of the radial flux that enters the SOL. The aim of this paper is to back up the interpretation of these probe flow measurements making use of SOLEDGE-2D code. In particular, this fluid code allows one to study density and parallel momentum transport in a 2D geometry including edge and SOL region. Moreover, thanks to an appropriate numerical technique recently proposed and , SOLEDGE-2D code is also able to deal with a complex geometry of plasma facing components including main and secondary limiters.
