Axisymmetric Magneto Dynamic (MHD) Stability of a Compressible Fluid Cylinder


Barakat HM

The axisymmetric magneto dynamic (MHD) stability of a compressible fluid cylinder under the action of inertia, and electromagnetic forces is developed. A general eigenvalue relation is derived studied analytically and the results are confirmed numerically. In absence of the effect of the electromagnetic forces interior and exterior the fluid, so the model is only subjected to the capillary force. It is found that the model is unstable in the region 0<x<1. While it is stable in the region 1<x<∞. This means that model is just unstable in small domains of axisymmetric perturbation but it stable in all other domains. For very high intensity of magnetic field the model is completely stable for all values of wave lengths. The compressibility has a stabilizing tendency.
