Notes

Summary: "This report consists of three parts. The first part is a summary of the fundamentals of magnetofluidmechanics which were used as a basis for this investigation. The second part is a brief review of the magnetofluidmechanics literature on flow modification that is relevant to this work. The last part presents an analytical investigation of some highly restricted magnetofluidmechanic flows.
The incompressible, electrically conducting flows are treated by continuum fluid mechanics using the assumption of small magnetic Reynolds number. Electrically conducting flow in the close vicinity of the axis of symmetry of a magnetic field similar to that of a single, circular current loop was studied under highly restrictive conditions. This example gave an indication of the effect which the magnetic field of a current loop has on the flow approaching it. Some magnetofluidmechanic vortex flows under the influence of nonuniform axial magnetic fields were also investigated. These flows displayed the dependence of the "effective" viscosity on electromagnetic parameters" (p. 5).
