The present paper reports a detailed analysis of disruptions in the IGNITOR tokamak. Two different numerical models are used (one axisymmetric, the other three-dimensional), in order to validate the results and to highlight specific effects due to different assumptions. The results show a good agreement between the two codes, when similar assumptions are made, and highlight the potential significance of three-dimensional effects.
