## Center for Extended Magnetohydrodynamic Modeling (CEMM, UW-Madison Physics)

The Center for Extended Magnetohydrodynamic Modeling (CEMM) focused on the further development, verification, validation, and application of two scientific computation programs, the NIMROD and M3D-C1 codes, for modeling macroscopic dynamics in magnetized plasma. Both NIMROD and M3D-C1 solve the mathematical equations that model two-fluid 3D magnetohydrodynamic (MHD). They are designed and optimized to be efficient and accurate for toroidal confinement physics calculations. The effort improved the fidelity of the physics models, the realism of the treatment of the surrounding vessel, coils, and other structures, the accuracy and efficiency of the algorithms, and the ability to scale calculations to thousands ofmore »
