Abstract

An effect of the nuclear elastic scattering (NES) on the neutral beam injection (NBI) plasma heating was examined by solving the Boltzmann-Fokker- Planck (BFP) equation for beam ion in the deuterium-tritium (DT) thermonuclear plasmas. The BFP calculations show that the enhancement in the fraction of the NBI heating power deposited to ions due to NES becomes appreciable when beam energy is larger than 1MeV, and the enhancement is strongly influenced by plasma parameters.
