A new turbulence model based on k-ε model is proposed to analyze liquid metal magnetohydrodynamic flows. The feature of the proposed model lies in introducing the additional terms in k-and ε-equations, which take into account the fluctuating electromagnetic force. The proposed turbulence model is verified by comparing some numerical results obtained with the model and existing experimental data of mercury flow in a circular pipe and a rectangular duct. The results show that the proposed model provides numeric…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
