A type-I ELMy H-mode discharge in JET has been analysed numerically using JINTRAC integrated code in order to obtain a self-consistent description of edge and core plasma. The time-dependent model consists of a self-consistent coupling of 1D core code JETTO/SANCO and 2D multi-fluid scrape-off-layer (SOL) code EDGE2D-EIRENE. The inter- and intra-ELM transport model has been adapted to match the experimental pre- and post ELM plasma profiles measured in JET and at the same time the observed ELM dynamics in terms of ELM frequency, ELM energy loss, ELM wetted area and heat flows towards target plates. It is found that the scaling for the free streaming approximations of ELM filamentary parallel SOL transport for the maximum heat flux, energy density and heat flux factor can be reproduced with the JINTRAC model. Results for the JET all-carbon reference case are then utilised to predict a type-I ELMy H-mode for ITER-like wall (ILW) assuming a full-tungsten divertor and beryllium main-chamber wall in the model. It is found that a moderate amount of seeded neon impurity (or other impurity species) is necessary to match a similar level of radiation when carbon is absent in the system. Finally, results of the ILW setup are used to estimate the total amount of tungsten particles eroded per ELM from the target plates and a rough estimate of the core radiative fraction due to W accumulation is given.
