MHD

I am working with magnetohydrodynamics.
I have to simulate a conductive fluid which is stationary at first. There are 4 magnets under the fluid. AC Electric current of 0.1Hz frequency is passed through the fluid. The fluid begins to move, and it oscillates as the current changes direction. How do I simulate this? Which physics do I use? Since the magnetic field is constant (permanent magnets), do I just need to add a source term in the NS equation? How do I do that? and since the lorentz force is J x B, how do I bring in current density into the picture? I know the conductivity of the fluid (salt concentration), I know the voltage I am applying.
Can I simulate that?

Re: MHD

You need the Magnetic Field (mf) interface from AC/DC (it gives you Maxwell's equations) and a Single Phase Fluid (spa) interface (which gives you Navier-Stokes' equations). Then you can couple them through the volume force, saying that those forces are the Lorentz forces.

Hi,

The following example on induction pump might be useful here.
