摘要：In this paper, based on the mean field dynamo theory, the influence of the electromagnetic boundary condition on the dynamo actions driven by the small scale turbulent flows in a cylindrical vessel is investigated by the integral equation approach. The numerical results show that the increase of the electrical conductivity or magnetic permeability of the walls of the cylindrical vessel can reduce the critical magnetic Reynolds number. Furthermore, the critical magnetic Reynolds number is more sensitive to the varying electrical conductivity of the end wall or magnetic permeability of the side wall. For the anisotropic dynamo which is the mean field model of the Karlsruhe experiment, when the relative electrical conductivity of the side wall or the relative magnetic permeability of the end wall is less than some critical value, the m=1 (m is the azimuthal wave number) magnetic mode is the dominant mode, otherwise the m=0 mode predominates the excited magnetic field. Therefore, by changing the material of the walls of the cylindrical vessel, one can select the magnetic mode excited by the anisotropic dynamo.
