We have started a simulation study of background plasma in the GAMMA 10 west end-cell using a fluid-code in order to understand divertor simulation experiments. In this fluid-code, the configuration of magnetic field lines in the west end-cell of GAMMA 10 is adopted with a mesh structure and basic physical processes such as reflection coefficient and recombination are considered. An initial computation result reveals that in the case of the plasma density range: ne ~ 1019 m-3, ion and electron temperature could not be reduced significantly to the suitable temperature for achieving the detachment. The effect of heat transfer coefficient on the target plasma is also discussed.
