The integrated framework for toroidal momentum transport is developed, which self-consistently calculates the neoclassical toroidal viscosity (NTV), the radial electric field and resultant toroidal rotation together with the scrape-off-layer (SOL) physics-based boundary model. The coupling of three codes, TOPICS, VMEC and FORTEC-3D, can calculate rotation caused by the NTV due to the non-axisymmetric perturbed magnetic field caused by toroidal field coils. It is found that the NTV influences toroidal rotation in JT-60U and holds the key to determine the NTV profile. The sensitivity of the toroidal rotation profile to the boundary rotation necessitates the boundary condition modeling. From the measurement in JT-60U, the gradient is found to be insensitive at the separatrix. Focusing on , the boundary model of toroidal momentum is developed in conjunction with the SOL/divertor plasma code. This modeling realizes self-consistent predictive simulations for operation scenario development in ITER.
