Laminar magnetohydrodynamical boundary layer on a current-conducting surface in the presence of a lateral velocity component and a volume retarding force

T. D. Kuznetsova - Yu. S. Levitan - E. V. Murav'ev - I. G. Panevin

The development of the profile of the lateral velocity component for an oblique flow of a conducting fluid past a current-conducting surface in the field of a retarding volume force in the presence of an insufflation and in the absence of a longitudinal pressure gradient is considered. It is shown that what happens when the variables do not depend on the lateral coordinate is not the separation of the lateral velocity component, as happens in the usual direct flow with stagnation, but a stratification of the flow, i.e., the streamlines near the wall are curved more strongly than in the more distant layers. The lateral velocity has no influence then on the development of the boundary layer along the longitudinal axis. It is shown that the stratification of the flow increases with the intensity of insufflation and with the MHD-interaction parameter.
