Selected papers of the 11th PAMIR International Conference
on Fundamental and Applied MHD
Reims, France July 1--5, 2019
This special issue presents some papers from more than 100 selected communications that were presented during the 11th International PAMIR Conference on Fundamental and Applied MagnetoHydroDynamics. This conference was organised in Reims, Champagne Capital, from July 1 to July 5, 2019. The Conference was jointly organized by French Universities of Grenoble and Reims, the Institute of Physics (University of Latvia), the University of Cagliari, the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, the French Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Commission (CEA), the French Ministry of Research, the French Scientific Research National Center (CNRS), and French Institutes in Latvia and Algeria sponsored the conference. To enlarge the scientific community involved in MHD research, an International Summer School that was jointly organized during the conference gathered numerous students.
During the conference, all the fundamental and applied aspects of MHD sciences have been discussed with specific themes, such as (i) basic MHD (convection and heat transfer in MHD, dynamo, instabilities and transition to turbulence, jets and surface waves, modelling of MHD turbulence, numerical and experimental methods, strong magnetic field, novel MHD problems and applications), (ii) liquid metal technologies for coolant applications (MHD pumps and flow control, measuring techniques for liquid metal coolants, corrosion by liquid metal, liquid metal mixing), (iii) applied MHD for material applications (metallurgical applications, magneto-electrolysis, MHD in crystal growth, electromagnetic processing of materials, magneto-static), (iv) ferrofluids (magnetic liquids, electrohydrodynamics), and some joint aspects as thermo-acoustic (modelling and numerical 2D and 3D simulation, engines for refrigeration, air conditioning electrical power, high and low heat source temperature and power scaling, thermo-acoustics for space missions) and space technologies (containment of liquid metals, MHD thrusters and solar sails).
This great variety of scientific fields shows the richness of MHD, the themes of this eleventh international conference after the previous ones that have taken place since 1991. It is certain that many results will continue to feed this scientific domain and will be presented during the next PAMIR Conference which will take place in Coventry (England) in 2022.
The organizers warmly thank all the sponsors who contributed to the financing of the event, which could not have been of the same quality without their participation.
