Ferrohydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics

  1. Mar 18, 2009 #1
    Hi guys,

    I am simulating a flow of ferrofluid in the fluent software.Since ferrofluid does not conduct so the it may not be categorized as magnetohydrodynamic (MHD)flow.As far as I know it is called ferrohydrodynamic flow.
    Now this requires a body force term in fluent...I am relatively new to fluent...whatever impression I have got so far is that to incorporate the Ferrohydrodynamic body force term in the momentum equation I have to use a user defined function.
    My question is there is a MHD module in fluent.Can I use it to simulate FHD flows?

    I just came across this post when I was searching for mangetohydrodyamics and yes there is a FLUENT MHD module.

    Here is the link to the manual.
