MAGNETOHYDRODYNAMICS by M. S. Tillack and N. B. Morley The authors wish to acknowledge the generous extraction of material on gaseous MHD power generation from the previous edition, authored by John C. Size: 3MB. The book covers intimately all the topics necessary for the development of a robust magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) code within the framework of the cell-centered finite volume method (FVM) and its applications in space weather study. First, it presents a brief review of existing MHD models in studying solar corona and the heliosphere.

magnetohydrodynamics (măg-nē′tō-hī′drō-dī-năm′ĭks) n. (used with a sing. verb) The study of the interaction of magnetic fields and electrically conducting liquids or gases, such as molten metal or plasma. Also called hydromagnetics. magne′tohy′drodynam′ic adj. magnetohydrodynamics. This book gives the first comprehensive overview of turbulence modelling from both the conventional and statistical-theoretical viewpoints. The mathematical structures of primary turbulence models such as algebraic (turbulent-viscosity-type), second-order, and subgrid-scales ones are elucidated, and the relationship between them is shown systematically.

Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) (magnetofluid dynamics or hydromagnetics) is the study of the dynamics of electrically conducting fluids. Examples of such fluids include plasmas, liquid metals, and salt water or electrolytes. The word magnetohydrodynamic is derived from magneto-meaning magnetic field, hydro-meaning liquid, and -dynamic meaning movement. This book provides complete analytical descriptions in quantitative agreement with existing numerics, as well as theoretical predictions in physical regimes still unreachable by simulations, and introduces new applications of MHD turbulence theories to a broad range of astrophysical : Springer Singapore.
