    Experiments at DIII-D have been conducted to validate models of the scaling of Test Blanket Module (TBM) torque with the normalised plasma pressure, and to extrapolate DIII-D results to ITER. The TBM generated torque was determined experimentally and found to increase with βN in good qualitative agreement with the IPECPENT [1] calculations of the neoclassical toroidal viscosity (NTV) torque. However, the measured torque was found to be roughly a factor of 3 smaller.
