Abstract:

Exact MHD solutions have been derived for the propagation of a shock-ionized plasma through applied magnetic field configurations pertinent to two- and three-dimensional MHD generators and plasma diagnostics. Calculated magnetic field perturbations and Faraday voltages are presented for a wide range of magnetic Reynolds number. The solutions provide insight into eddy current and magnetic diffusion effects in MHD generator sections. Author
