Abstract [en]

Mutual contamination between C and W, resulting from the simultaneous use of these materials as plasma facing components, is simulated by means of a computer simulation code, Erosion and Deposition based on Dynamic model (EDDY). W deposition on C rapidly increases the reflection coefficient for D and C impurity. In comparison between the calculation and a C-W twin test limiter experiment in TEXTOR-94, C release from the C side of the limiter is dominated by reflection of C impurity from the W deposits, in addition to physical sputtering of C; chemical erosion is strongly suppressed. Due to the dynamic effect which makes C-W mixed layer, C deposition on W gradually changes the reflection coefficient and sputter yields. Formation of a sharp boundary between erosion and C deposition zones on the W side of the limiter is well reproduced by simulation. Local redeposition patterns of C and W on the limiter surface are also calculated.
