Direct numerical simulation of dynamo transition for nonhelical MHD
Pseudospectral Direct Numerical Simulation (DNS) has been performed to simulate dynamo transition for nonhelical magnetohydrodynamics turbulence. The numerical results are compared with a recent low-dimensional model [Verma et al. ]. The forcing in DNS is the same as that used in the low-dimensional model. Dynamo transition is observed in DNS, but the forcing required for the transition is higher than that for the model. A qualitative similarity is observed between DNS and model results. The difference is due to the presence of large number of modes present in the DNS. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.
