Abstract:

In a two-dimensional magnetic boundary layer approximation 1 much smaller than R sub M much smaller than Re the MGD basic equations are used for treating certain classes of slender nozzle flows. By a two-parameter similarity transformation the general boundary layer equations are transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations, which can be solved analytically for a certain parameter combination. Also the general solution of the ideal MGD boundary layer equations is given in a closed form. These classes of formal solutions are used for studying various flows through diverging and converging nozzles and free plasma jets confined by magnetic fields. Author
