Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper, we discuss the planarized BIPAS flow. BIPAS and QuasiPAS are modification flows from the Pekeris, Accad and Shkoller flow. These flows were firstly introduced by Bachtiar [1]. He established the flow, along with QuasiPAS flow, in order to find a planar velocity dynamo. He reported he did not find any planar velocity dynamo using fully-planarized BIPAS. Bachtiar et al. [2] reported that the poloidal component of the QuasiPAS plays an important role in improving the rate of the magnetic field. So, in this project, we tried to observe the effect of planarized poloidal part of BIPAS on the rate of change of the Earth’s magnetic field. We concluded that poloidal component on the planarized BIPAS gives an important role in improving the rate of magnetic field. We, however, do not find any successful kinematic dynamos within the observed magnetic Reynolds number’s interval.
