On the Hydromagnetic Stability of a Rotating Fluid Annulus
Keywords:Hydromagnetic Stability, Rotating Fluid
The linear stability of a rotating fluid in the annulus between two concentric cylinders is investigated in the presence of a magnetic field which is azimuthal as well as in axial direction. Several results of MHD stability have been derived by using the inner product method. It is shown that when the swirl velocity component is large, the hydromagnetic effects become small compared with those due to swirl. The presence of a velocity field and imposed magnetic field will lead to the basic state to more stability.
