In this study, we perform to identify the boundary condition for the toroidal plasma flow, which is known to play an important role for an improved plasma stability and/or confinement, to improve the prediction in the plasma core region by a code, experimentally. Boundary condition of toroidal plasma flow imposed at the separatrix in JT-60U ELMy H-mode plasmas has been identified, comparing between co- and counter-NBI discharges. Toroidal plasma flow at the separatrix can become non-zero value, varying with momentum input direction, but being unaffected by the ELM event. The results indicate that the viscosity damping due to SOL flow through ion-neutral collision may not affect strongly ion parallel momentum transfer.
