Abstract

The 3D effects of conducting structures on Resistive Wall Modes (RWM) evolution are studied on the RFX-mod device. Toroidal coupling allows an alternative interpretation of the RWM spectrum; the effect of gaps may in some cases significantly increase the growth rate of the unstable modes, improving the agreement with experimental results.
