Fast rotating magnetohydrodynamical boundary layer

S. V. Starchenko

MHD boundary layer arising near a rigid boundary with finite conductivity at fast and almost rigid rotation has been considered. Layer structure is determined by the normal component of the large-state magnetic field and angle of the boundary to the rotation axis. This boundary layer degenerates in an Eckmann layer in the absence of magnetic field and becomes a Hartmann layer if the boundary is parallel to the rotation axis. Selfmatched characteristic values of magnetic field inside and outside the layer have been obtained. Refs 7
