# MHD Flow Regimes in Annular Channel

@inproceedings{Zhang2021MHDFR, title={MHD Flow Regimes in Annular Channel}, author={Kaiyu Zhang and Yibai Wang and Hai-bin Tang and Li-jun Yang}, year={2021} }

One method and two results are contributed to the complete understanding about MHD laminar flow in annular channel with transverse magnetic field in this paper. In terms of the method, a computationally cheap semi-analytic algorithm is developed based on spectral method and perturbation expansion. By virtue of the fast computation, dense cases with almost continuous varying Hartmann number M , Reynolds number Re and cross-section ratio η are calculated to explore the flow patterns that are…
