# Tritium Desorption¶

## Overview¶

We use Achlys to model the macroscopic transport of tritium through fusion reactor materials using the Foster-McNabb equations. Achlys is built on top of the MOOSE Finite Element Framework.

## Description¶

Achlys models macroscopic tritium transport processes through fusion reactor materials as described in the Achlys documentation and in Delaporte-Mathurin et al. (2019).

Particularly, we solve the following equations:

where \(C_m\) is the concentration of mobile particles, \(C_{t,i}\) is the concentration of particles at the \(i\)th trap type and \(T\) is the temperature.

Additionally, the evolution of the extrinsic trap density \(n_3\) is modelled as

This takes into account additional trapping sites that are created as the material is damaged during implantation.

Please see Hodille et al. (2015) for more details.

The setup used in this particular benchmark models the experimental work of Ogorodnikova et al. (2003).
