The current design plans for the International Thermonuclear\nExperimental Reactor ( ITER) call for tungsten to be employed for\ncertain plasma facing components in the divertor region. Thus, accurate\natomic collision data are needed for emission modelling of tungsten.\nElectron-impact excitation and radiative rates are of particular\nimportance for Ni-like W, since this ion emits some of the most intense\nspectral lines of all ionization stages. We report on a fully\nrelativistic 115-level R-matrix calculations of W46+, which includes the\neffects of radiation damping. Although radiation damping is very\nimportant in most highly ionized species, its effects are reduced in\nthis case because of the closed-shell Ni-like ground state. The rates\nfrom these relativistic atomic calculations will be employed for\ncollisional-radiative modelling of this ion.
