Abstract | In this study, we continue with a recursive renormalization group (RG) analysis of incompressible turbulence, aiming at investigating various turbulent properties of three-dimensional magneto-hydrodynamics (MHD). In particular, we are able to locate the fixed point (i.e. the invariant effective eddy viscosity) of the RG transformation under the following conditions. (i) The mean magnetic induction is relatively weak compared to the mean flow velocity. (ii) The Alfvén effect holds, that is, the fluctuating velocity and magnetic induction are nearly parallel and approximately equal in magnitude. It is found under these conditions that re-normalization does not incur an increment of the magnetic resistivity, while the coupling effect tends to reduce the invariant effective eddy viscosity. Both the velocity and magnetic energy spectra are shown to follow the Kolmogorov k-5/3 in the inertial subrange; this is consistent with some laboratory measurements and observations in astronomical physics. By assuming further that the velocity and magnetic induction share the same specified form of energy spectrum, we are able to determine the dependence of the (magnetic) Kolmogorov constant C K (CM) and the model constant CS of the Smagorinsky model for large-eddy simulation on some characteristic wavenumbers. |
