Magnetohydrodynamics occurs when a conducting fluid flows in the presence of a magnetic field, such that the magnetic forces affect the motion of the fluid. In some cases, the induced currents in the fluid are strong enough to affect the magnetic field itself.
The applications of Magnetohydrodynamics are very broad, ranging from astrophysics and plasma physics to drug targeting. Modeling Magnetohydrodynamics involves coupling physics from two different fields: fluid dynamics and electromagnetics.
Magnetic Drug Targeting in Cancer Therapy
This model demonstrates a setup for investigating an external magnetic field's effect and interaction with blood flow that contains a magnetic carrier substance. The animation shows the magnetic field, and its effect on the blood flow.
