MHD Simulation Of Laboratory Jets
February 25, 2020
We present the results of numerical simulations of the formation and development of magnetized jets. We simulate a plasma flow, for which we chose a numerical method, boundary and initial conditions. We investigate the picture of the flow for different magnetic field configurations. We compared these results with the experiment on a NEODIM laser installation. In the absence of a magnetic field, a substantial expansion of the jet occurs. In the presence of a strong poloidal magnetic field, the jet expands only slightly, which confirms the possibility of a magnetic collimation mechanism for astrophysical jets. Under certain values of the magnetic field a ring structure may form. The opening angle of these simulated structures approximates the results of the laboratory experiment.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
