Analytic investigation of innovations utilizing magneto-hydrodynamic work interaction devices in high-speed flows
Keywords and Phrases
Translating field magnetohydrodynamics
"A forward-marching differential code is developed to numerically solve the quasi-1-dimensional governing equations for fluid flow in an internal duct with area variation, friction, heat transfer, and work interaction. Magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) work interaction is considered specifically and the numerical code is utilized to analyze the MHD energy bypass engine concept for high-speed flight. An innovation for MHD technology, designated here as translating-field magneto-hydrodynamics (TFMHD), is introduced and developed for quasi-1-dimensional flow. Comparisons are made between MHD and TFMHD devices, with emphasis on the external split between electrical and mechanical power. Potential applications of TFMHD phenomena are briefly considered in the form of modifications to existing conventional MDH devices.--Abstract, leaf iii.
