Abstract Fourteen standard test cases developed for the BALDUR code are described. Selected output is presented. Title of program: BALDUR Catalogue Id: ABBS_v1_0 Nature of problem The purpose of the version of the BALDUR code documented here is to calculate the evolution of plasma parameters in an MHD equilibrium which can be approximated by concentric circular flux surfaces. Transport of up to six species of ionized particles, of electron and ion energy, and of poloidal magnetic field is computed. A wide variety of source terms are calculated including those due to neutral gas, fusion and auxiliary heating. The code is primarily designed for modeling tokamak plasmas but ...
