- Numerical studies show that by indenting the small-major-radius side of conventional finite-aspect-ratio tokamaks, significant improvements to the stability of pressure-driven ideal MHD modes can be achieved. The internal n - 1 kink mode can be stabilized completely with quite modest indentation. Kink-ballooning mode stability is also improved, and, in the presence of a nearby conducting wall, accessibility to a second stable region at high plasma ..beta.. is possible.
