General Balance Equations for a Fluid-Fluid Interface in Magnetofluiddynamics

  • Soubbaramayer


The boundary conditions on the interface separating two magneto-fluids in motion are derived. As an application the surface depression in a high current arc weld pool is calculated and compared with experimental results.
