Hartmann Boundary Layer
Application ID: 73451
Classical MHD benchmark problem was solved analytically by J. Hartmann. He considered laminar incompressible flow between two planes (in planar duct) in transversal imposed magnetic field under next assumptions: * fully developed flow (far from inlet) * fluid properties are constant * the distance between planes is equal to 2d * average inlet velocity is U0 * imposed magnetic field is H0. This model solves this problem numerically using dimensional equations and then comparison with analytical dimensionless solution of Hartmann is made.
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
