Development of finite local perturbations of electrical conductivity in the flow of a weaklyconducting gas when a magnetic field is present
Abstract
A study has been made of the possibility of development of a Tlayer from local finite perturbation of electrical conductivity, introduced artificially into a steady state flow of a weakly conducting gas. The analysis is made with the help of a numerical solution of equations of magnetic hydrodynamics, formulated in the assumption that the electron, ion and neutral components of the medium are found in thermodynamic equilibrium; the viscosity, Hall effect and transfer of energy by radiation are not taken into account.
