Abstract:

Research concerns an incompressible, viscous, electrically conducting fluid in steady flow in a long cylindrical channel to which an external torque is applied, making the fluid rotate. This rotation diffuses upstream and downstream due to viscosity it is also carried downstream by convection. If, in addition, there is a uniform applied magnetic field in the channel, motion of the conducting fluid across the magnetic lines is retarded. The problem considered herein to determine how the rotational velocity was distributed in the channel, and how the applied magnetic field was distorted by this motion. Author
