Numerical simulations for the Riga dynamo

Full numerical solutions have been developed in order to calculate the fluid flow and the related magnetic field distribution of the Riga dynamo experiment. Two-equation eddy-viscosity and full Reynolds-stress models have been used for the turbulence modelling. The coupled system was solved by a T-RANS based on large eddy simulation. In parallel, also kinematic dynamo calculations have been performed. The simulations showed a good agreement with the simplified model and with the experimental data.
