ARCHIE Project description: 3TB
Potential output of the project:

Likely to lead to several novel research outcomes and publications

1) Papers on:
a) Scattering of microwave beams from turbulence
b) Mode conversion of microwave beams in tokamak relevant pedestals
c) Delivery of microwave current drive in spherical aspect ratio tokamaks
Likely journals include Plasma Phys. Contol. Fusion, Phys. Plasmas, PRL, Nuclear Fusion

2) KE impacts
a) See topics above
b) Enabling future fusion energy power plants based on spherical aspect ratio tokamaks- e.g. through the STEP project currently supporting this proposal

Software required for the project: user supplied code
Software required to be installed for the project: EMIT-3D, exists mostly in user space- experience of this routine has largely defined the estimates of typical job specification
Experience in using software package 1: 10
Software required to be installed for the project: Genray/Torbeam (similar but distinct routines- both basically “open” source, single threaded (though with MPI subroutines) but desirable to run a lot of instances of the serial variants, can be very effectively “parallelised” by scripts), exists mostly in user space, requires netCDF and Intel Compiliers
Experience in using software package 2: 7
Software required to be installed for the project: EPOCH, PiC code, exists mostly in user space, I believe this is already used on Archie-West
Experience in using software package 3: 1
Training required:
Other training required: Training needs may vary from user to user- the named initial users are quite experienced in large HPC systems
Experience in using HPC: 8
