Abstract:

The streaming flow of a weakly conducting viscous fluid past a non-conducting sphere in the presence of an aligned uniform magnetic field is investigated for low Hartmann number using a Galerkin method. If convection effects are neglected it is found that eddies occur symmetrically for and aft of the sphere when the Hartmann number exceeds 2.9. Author
