Electromagnetically driven flow of electrolyte in a thin annular layer: axisymmetric solutions
Experimental observations of an azimuthal electrolyte flow driven by Lorentz force in a thin annular fluid layer placed on top of a magnet show that it develops a robust vortical system near the
We present a numerical study of the rotating flow generated by two rotating disks in co-/counter-rotating, inside a fixed cylindrical enclosure similar to the Czochralski configuration (Cz).  The
Direct numerical simulation of quasi-two-dimensional MHD turbulent shear flows
Abstract High-resolution direct numerical simulations are performed to study the turbulent shear flow of liquid metal in a cylindrical container. The flow is driven by an azimuthal Lorentz force
Turbulence in electromagnetically driven Keplerian flows
Abstract The flow of an electrically conducting fluid in a thin disc under the action of an azimuthal Lorentz force is studied experimentally. At small forcing, the Lorentz force is balanced by
Experiment on a confined electrically driven vortex pair.
The first experimental evidence of a transition to three-dimensionality in liquid metal magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) is shown by comparing velocity measurements on either horizontal sides of the layer as it is found that columnar vortice wobble for a high enough forcing.
An Analytic Study of the Reversal of Hartmann Flows by Rotating Magnetic Fields
The effects of a background uniform rotating magnetic field acting in a conducting fluid with a parallel flow are studied analytically and it is shown that near the wall the flow will eventually reverse its direction, provided the rate of rotation and/or the magnetic field are large enough.
Numerical simulations of an effective two-dimensional model for flows with a transverse magnetic field
This paper presents simulations of the two-dimensional model developed by Pothérat et al. (2000) for MHD flows between two planes with a strong transverse homogeneous and steady magnetic field,

We investigate the swirling flow of liquid metal in an axisymmetric cavity of arbitrary profile, generated by a rotating magnetic field. In addition to the primary swirling motion, a recirculation is
Magnetohydrodynamic flow between rotating coaxial disks
This is a study of the magnetohydrodynamic flow of an incompressible viscous fluid between coaxial disks, with a uniform axial magnetic field B. The fluid has density ρ, viseosity η and electrical
Stability of mixed Ekman-Hartmann boundary layers
In this paper we study the nonlinear stability of Ekman-Hartmann-type boundary layers in a rotating magnetohydrodynamics flow in a half-space and between two planes. We prove rigorously that if the
Hydromagnetics of rotating fluids
The author reviews work on the dynamics of a rapidly rotating electrically conducting fluid in the presence of a corotating magnetic field. While the separate action of either rotation or a magnetic
