An Application of Karman’s Energy Transfer Process in Hydromagnetic Turbulence

G. C. Pramanik
Published Online: 2014-06-02 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/zna-1979-0610


A modified version of Chandrasekhar’s equation is derived with the aid of Karman’s energy transfer process for the decay of hydromagnetic turbulence in the limiting case of zero viscosity and infinite electrical conductivity. It is found that the asymptotic behaviour of self-preserving solutions of the aforesaid equations leads to F(k, t)≈k4 , (c = 2/7), G(k, t)≈k6 , (c = 2/9) as k→0 and F(k,t)≈k-5/3 ,G(k,t)≈k-5/3 for k→∞.
