ABSTRACT
In this paper, we present numerical and experimental
studies of the behavior of a liquid metal jet in a constant
and gradient magnetic field. The experiments were
conducted in the Magnetic Torus Liquid Metal MHD flow
test facility (MTOR). The experimental results have shown
that free jets can be stabilized by the magnetic field. The
Lorentz force signifcantly suppresses the motion of the
liquid metal jet and delays the break-up position. Analysis
based on linear theory has been applied to understand jet
behavior under magnetic fields. In addition, numerical
simulation based on B formulation has been performed
and compared to the experimental results

In a fusion device, the issue of how to protect the
bottom part of the reactor interior is a problem. One
