In this paper, we consider a liquid metal flow generated in a cylindrical volume by AC currents in various coil configurations. The final aim of this study is to design and optimize a Rayleigh-Bénard experiment with a large scale circulation, the helicity oscillation of which is synchronized by a periodically modulated tide-like m=2 perturbation. Figs 7, Refs 21.
