Abstract

Buoyancy driven magnetohydrodynamic flows are considered in the context of some magnetically confined fusion reactors using liquid metals as breeder and/or coolant Giancarli, Severi, Baraer, Leroy, Mercier, Proust and Quintric-Bossy (1992). Here, convective or forced flow is strongly opposed by the applied magnetic field. In these applications it may happen that the MHD damping is so large that convective heat transfer becomes a problem.
