The first results of the movable multipurpose probe (MPP) experiments performed on the IR-T1 Tokamak are presented. For this purpose, a moveable MPP was designed, constructed, and installed on the IR-T1 Tokamak for the first time. MPP can measure radial variation of floating potential and ion saturation current, electrostatic fluctuation, magnetic fluctuation, and flow velocity simultaneously. The relation between gradient of Reynolds stress and poloidal particle flux can be investigated by MPP. It can measure the radial variation of radial electric field and poloidal electric field. The most advantage of MPP is to measure electric and magnetic plasma fluctuations simultaneously. MPP is composed of three sections: electrical part, magnetic part, and flow measurement section. This is a compact probe in which do not disturb plasma. The results are presented and discussed.

    Electron sheaths are commonly found near Langmuir probes collecting the electron saturation current. The common assumption is that the probe collects the random flux of electrons incident on the sheath, which tacitly implies that there is no electron presheath and that the flux collected is due...

    We present an augmented immersed interface method for simulating the dynamics of a deformable structure with mass in an incompressible fluid. The fluid is modeled by the Navier-Stokes equations in two dimensions. The acceleration of the structure due to mass is coupled with the flow velocity and...
