The intention of the ”von Kármán sodium” (VKS) experiment is to study the hydromagnetic dynamo effect in a highly turbulent and unconstrained flow. Much effort has been devoted to the optimization of the mean flow and the lateral boundary conditions in order to minimize the critical magnetic Reynolds number R m and hence the necessary motor power. The main focus of this paper lies on the role of ”lid layers”, i.e. layers of liquid sodium between the impellers and the end walls of the cylinder… CONTINUE READING
