The integrated framework for toroidal momentum transport is developed, which self-consistently calculates the neoclassical toroidal viscosity (NTV), the radial electric field $$E_r$$ 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 $$E_r$$ 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 $$E_r$$ gradient is found to be insensitive at the separatrix. Focusing on $$E_r$$, 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.
