Kapisn

Abstract
The KAPISN module computes neoclassical thermal transport f rom several models including the Rutherford, modified Hazeltine-Hinton, Bolton, Chang-Hinton (1982) and modified Chang-Hinton (1986) models. Each model computes the ion thermal conductivity at a single grid point whereby the electron thermal conductivity is computed externally in the driver r outine assuming it to be equal to the square root of the mass ratio times the io n thermal conductivity. Inside the q=1 surface, it is assumed that the ion and e lectron thermal conductivities are equal. This module was used extensively in the MLT shooting code at General Atomics during the ITER model testing exercise using the modified Hinton-Hazeltine prescription.
