Abstract
A consistent, conservative and accurate scheme has been designed to calculate the current density and the Lorentz force
by solving the electrical potential equation for magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) at low magnetic Reynolds numbers and
high Hartmann numbers on a finite-volume structured collocated grid. In this collocated grid, velocity (u), pressure (p),
