3-Dimensional current distribution in the nozzle of an MHD channel

S. Kuo, E. Levi, H. Schachter

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The nozzle has been idealized by retaining only its salient feature, the accelerated motion of the fluid. Analytical solutions of the current distributions have been obtained and plotted. High current concentrations can be avoided by allowing a net current flow through an appropriate electrical connection to the nozzle and by minimizing the turbulence in the fluid flow.
