Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In contrast to Ref [1] studying MHD processes in a helical channel induced by a vertical rotating electric current layer, in the present report we examine another version with the rotating electric current layer orthogonal to the helical channel axis, which leads to an increase in melt velocity with the growing pitch angle a of the helical channel.
