Averaged and fluctuating characteristics of a plane jet flow without any longitudinal pressure gradient in a strong magnetic field were investigated. It was shown that the originated turbulence is two-dimensional and of great strength. The intensity and direction of the momentum and energy transfer processes in the flow cross-section were analyzed using the data on the distributions of the longitudinal and transverse velocity fluctuation strengths, of the Reynolds shear stresses, of the turbulence energy generation, and of the asymmetry coefficient of the turbulent perturbations. Figs 8, Refs 11.
