MHD Flow under an impact of permanent magnets driving system Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract: Liquid metal MHD flow initiated by a system of rotating permanent magnets in rectangular cavity has been investigated. We examine the impact of influential magnetic forcing parameters on the produced hydrodynamic structures in the cavity. The spin-up modes and steady-state flow regimes have been simulated in 3D numerical model and verified experimentally on a specially designed setup using Doppler ultrasound technique.
