Multi-Physics Magneto-Hydro-Dynamic MHD


FLUIDYN studies the dynamics of electrically conducting fluids like plasmas, liquid metals, and salt water. The magnetic fields can induce currents in a moving conductive fluid, which create forces on the fluid, and also change the magnetic field itself. A boundary layer based integral approach is employed for analyzing the coupled problem of electro-magneto-hydrodynamic convection and melting of an electrically conducting material. Simulation studies are executed for representative systems of materials, with a wide range of variation of processing parameters.

Studies like dealing with mathematical modelling and numerical simulation of induction heating furnaces with axi-symmetric geometries are being done with the help of
FLUIDYN software.
