We consider a dissipative model of a stationary, axisymmetric plasma configuration which allows to compute the pressure p and the toroidal magnetic field Bφ{symbol}as functions of the poloidal magnetic flux ι in Grad-Shafranov's equation. This will be obtained through the solution of four coupled equations in the four unknowns p, Bφ{symbol}, T (temperature) and ι. © 1994 Società Italiana di Fisica.
