We consider the case of homogeneous turbulence in a conducting fluid that is exposed to a uniform external magnetic field. When the magnetic Reynolds number is vanishingly small (Rm ¿ 1), the induced magnetic fluctuations are much weaker than the applied field, and in addition, their characteristic time scale based on their diffusion is much shorter than the eddy turnover time. In this case, it is customary to simplify the governing MHD equations using what is known as the quasi-static (QS… CONTINUE READING
