Abstract

Using numerical simulations, it is shown that the systematic flow of plasma along a coronal magnetic flux tube is easily produced by a change in the spatial dependence of the heating rate from a symmetric deposition which supports a stationary equilibrium to a time-independent asymmetric deposition. The velocity of the flow is roughly proportional to the heating symmetry and is directed to the side of the loop away from the bulk of the energy deposition.
