- Results are summarized of two-dimensional MHD simulations of the reversed field pinches Eta-Beta, ZT-1, ZT-S, and ZT-40. The model used is the single-fluid, time-dependent, axisymmetric (i.e., no toroidal variation) magnetohydrodynamic equations with dissipation. Initial conditions assume a fully ionized cold (approximately 1 eV) plasma-at-rest, with appropriate bias toroidal field. The equations are driven by time-dependent boundary conditions: the toroidal field B/sub z/(t), and the poloidal flux chi (t), prescribed as functions of time in agreement with the experimental conditions. The poloidal flux is indirectly extrapolated from the prescribed toroidal current I/sub z/(t).
