Abstract

 A visualization study has been made of the patterns of a quasi-two-dimensional flow consisting of a linear array of four main cellular vortices. The flow is driven electromagnetically by the Lorentz force due to the interaction between a constant magnetic field arranged with alternating polarities and an electrolyzing current through a horizontal thin layer of an electrolytic aqueous solution. A peculiar flow consisting of a middle vortex pair reduced in size and two outer grown-up vortices is found to form when the reduced Lorentz force exceeds about 100.
