Abstract : Extensive simulations of chemically reactive magneto-hydrodynamic flows have been performed at the Naval Research Laboratory. The paper discusses briefly the numerical scheme and the use of virtual disc storage. It shows how the data flow for the computation of chemical reactions is organized to achieve an optimal computing speed. As an example the plasma flow around the earth is simulated. The results show a detailed structure, therefore demonstrating the almost complete lack of diffusion. (Author)
