The paper discusses transient distributions of physical fields computed with LES for a turbulent bubbles’ flow through an electrically conducting liquid in a cylindrical bubble reactor which is placed in an external uniform transversal or a longitudinal magnetic field. The experimentally verified (without magnetic field) Euler-Euler approach, realized with the ANSYS Fluent MHD module is used for multiphase flow when the continuous phase is Wood metal and the dispersed phase is nitrogen bubbles.
