Vertical Displacement Events (VDEs) and Major Disruptions (MDs) of the plasma current will induce large electromagnetic forces on the ITER machine. Estimation of these forces based on accurate modeling of these events is necessary for a robust ITER design. Originally the estimates for electromagnetic forces on ITER were carried out with the help of DINA simulations. However, since simulations of these events may be significantly influenced by model assumptions of a given code it is important to validate the results against other codes like TSC, as also benchmark and update the codes with experimental data. In this paper, we present TSC modeling of the VDE and MD events in NSTX and ASDEX-U devices, which help in improving and validating the models used in the code. The predictive modeling results for ITER with the updated code, including the force predictions, are also presented.
