Abstract:

Some aspects are considered of boundary layer type flows in gases whic are partially or wholly ionized. The change in transport properties due to ionization are estimated and the resulting effects on heat transfer in a monatomic gas are determined. A type of magnetohydrodynamic boundary layer encountered in channel flows where there exists an applied magnetic field normal to the wall is considered. Finally, the laminar diffusive mixing of a magnetic field and a compressible plasma is studied. Author
