Anomalous Transport / Proceedings of the Tenth Carolus Magnus Summer School on Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics
This tutorial presents the techniques that are used to build a transport model from turbulence simulations. Achievements and limitations are reviewed. The main mechanisms leading to an improved confinement are also addressed. The results of turbulence modelling regarding this issue are assessed.
