This is a textbook to introduce these This new edition of this celebrated introduction differs principally by the inclusion of detailed solutions for those exercises, and by the addition of a Foreword by Professor J.

The stability criteria are discussed theoretically and numerically and stability diagrams are obtained, where regions of stability and instability are identified.

These problems, for which hints and references are given, not only provide exercises for students but also provide many additional results in a concise form. The system is composed of a middle fluid embedded between two semi-infinite hdrodynamic, in which the effect of the normal magnetic field is to introduce.

Reid No preview available – Koschmieder Limited preview – Description Hydrodynamic stability is of fundamental importance in fluid mechanics and is concerned with the problem of transition from laminar to turbulent flow. Scientific Research An Academic Publisher.

It is established that both the viscosity coefficient and the magnetic permeability damps the growth rate, introducing stabilizing influence.

The hydrodynammic aim of this work is to investigate the influence of fluid viscosity and the porosity effect on the growth rate in the presence of normal magnetic field. Influence of the various parameters of the problem on the interface stability is thoroughly discussed.
