Abstract:

Exact similarity solutions are derived for the incompressible flow of electrically conducting, viscous fluids across homogeneous, axial magnetic fields and nonuniform, azimuthal magnetic fields in diffusers with plane walls. The velocity distributions in the MHD diffusers, the onset of flow separation, and the control of separation by means of magnetic fields are discussed under consideration of induced magnetic fields and viscous stress relaxation. The Stark-effect and absorbtion satellite spectra in Helium plasma flows with homogeneous magnetic fields are calculated in presence of laser radiation.
