Tests of an MHD code
A magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) computer simulation code is tested for numerical accuracy and physical plausibility. Comparisons are made between numerical results and simple linear theory. The adverse affects of numerical ...
Low viscosity channels and the stability of long wavelength convection
Mantle convection simulations with a low viscosity channel, akin to the Earth's asthenosphere, are characterized by long wavelength flow structure. Boundary layer theory predicts that as the viscosity of the channel ...
