Abstract

The stabilizing effect of Brinkmann viscosity (BV) in MHD convection in a horizontal porous layer L – filled by an electrically conducting fluid, heated from below and imbedded in a transverse magnetic field – is analyzed. The critical Rayleigh number of linear stability is found and – in closed forms – conditions for the onset of steady or oscillatory convection are obtained. Via the linearization principle given in [16] it is shown that unconditional nonlinear stability of thermal magnetic conduction solution is guaranteed by linear stability. The long-time behavior is characterized via the existence of image sets.
