OVERTURNING MOMENT

Torque (moment) on a toroidal field coil in a tokamak, about the device's radial direction, that results from out-of-plane forces on the coil due to the interactions between the coil current and the poloidal (vertical) magnetic field. This torque tends to overturn the vertical toroidal field coil, and should be engineered against.
