Efficient acceleration of cylindrical jets: effects of radiative cooling and tangled magnetic field

13 Mar 2020 Tanaka Shuta J. Toma Kenji

Diverging supersonic flows are accelerating, as in the case of a de Laval nozzle, and the same concept has been applied for acceleration of magnetohydrodynamic flows in the universe. Here, we study the dynamics of "non-diverging" cylindrical supersonic flows and show that they can be accelerated by effects of radiative cooling and the tangled magnetic field... (read more)
