# Mean field dynamo action in shear flows. I: fixed kinetic helicity

@article{Jingade2019MeanFD, title={Mean field dynamo action in shear flows. I: fixed kinetic helicity}, author={Naveen Jingade and Nishant Kumar Singh}, journal={Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society}, year={2019} }

We study mean field dynamo action in a background linear shear flow by employing pulsed renewing flows with fixed kinetic helicity and non-zero correlation time (τ). We use plane shearing waves in terms of time-dependent exact solutions to the Navier–Stokes equation as derived by Singh & Sridhar (2017). This allows us to self-consistently include the anisotropic effects of shear on the stochastic flow. We determine the average response tensor governing the evolution of mean magnetic field…
