Title:Boundary-layer theory of magnetohydrodynamic turbulent convection
Author(s):Riahi, Daniel N.
Subject(s):Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulent Convection
Abstract:Boundary layer theory of magnetohydrodynamic turbulent convection in horizontal fluid layers heated from below is reviewed. Such theory is based on a strongly nonlinear hydromagnetic convection system at high Rayleigh numbers that is approximated by applying one of several mathematical methods, including Galerkin and mean-field approaches. In general, turbulent magnetohydrodynamic convection can be investigated successfully using Busse multi-boundary-layer theory, which involves a sequence of different boundary layers, each of which represents a flow mode. The boundary layer theory serves as an analytical method that can be used to understand the structure of turbulent hydromagnetic convection.
