Spherical shock waves in viscous magnetogasdynamics
- 25 Downloads
The point-source, spherical magnetogasdynamics shock wave moving into a constant density γ-law gas is considered in the limit of infinite shock strength, from the point of view of the Richtmyer-Von Neumann viscosity technique. Numerical solutions of this problem has been obtained in viscous and non-viscous regions. A similarity solution of this problem is shown to exist. We have shown that field variables change rapidly when the magnetic field is imposed in both the viscous and the non-viscous regions.
