A new 3D MHD code for applications in magneto-convection simulation: some preliminary test results
Chunlin Tian


Based on flux splitting method, the accurate and robust gas-kinetic BGK scheme for supersonic flows has been extended to include the magnetic field. The staggered mesh is used to maintain the divergence-free constraint. In order to validate the 3d BGK MHD code we developed, magneto-convections occurring in a deep atmosphere is simulated at low resolution. Some preliminary results are shown here.
