Simple Applications of Magnetohydrodynamics

  • J. A. Bittencourt


The basic equations governing the behavior of a conducting fluid have been presented and discussed in Chapter 9. For convenience, we reproduce here the simplified form of the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations. They include the equation of continuity for the whole conducting fluid
$$\frac{{\partial {\rho _m}}}{{\partial t}} + \nabla \bullet ({\rho _m}u) = 0$$
