Impressive progress by F4E in the numerical modelling of the ITER toroidal field coil system

We are impressed by the new numerical model representing the entire ITER Toroidal Field (TF) coil system (18 coils in total) developed by F4E.

“It’s the first time we have a complete model of the entire ITER TF system with such a level of detail”, says Gabriele D’Amico, F4E Technical Responsible for the development of this model, “The level of complexity of the tool is outstanding. For example there are more than 1,500 bolts connecting the different pieces of the TF magnet system and the model allows us to predict the behaviour of each one during operations”, he explains.
