On Ionization and Porosity in MHD Couette Flow of a Two-Component Plasma

MA Alabraba

Abstract


The effect of ionization and porosity on the field structure of two-component plasma is studied. The flow is initiated by a relative motion of two horizontal flat plates in the presence of a uniformly applied magnetic field. A fully developed, viscous, incompressible flow with no convection current applies and the profile together with the effect of ionization and porosity on the velocity, temperature and induced magnetic field studied for astrophysical and geophysical systems.

Keywords: Couette flow; two-component plasma; MHD; porosity; ionization
