Abstract

Several new results in the physics of edge poloidal flows, turbulent stresses and momentum transport are reported. These are based on experiments on the HL-2A tokamak. Significant deviation from neoclassical prediction for mean poloidal flow in Ohmic and L mode discharges is deduced from direct measurements of the turbulent Reynolds stress. The deviation increases with heating power. The turbulent poloidal viscosity is synthesized from fluctuation data, and is found to be comparable to the turbulent particle diffusivity. The intrinsic poloidal torque is deduced from synthesis, for the first time. PDFs of particle flux and Reynolds stress are obtained. Both exhibit fat tails and large kurtosis, suggesting that the momentum transport process represented by the Reynolds stress is not well described by quasilinear calculations.
