Abstract : A review of the effects of electric and magnetic fields on heat transfer in electrically conducting fluids is given. Starting from first principles, the basic equations are developed and then applied to various classical heat-transfer problems, such as free convection, channel flow, and boundary-layer flows. Each subject discussed has some practical application to contemporary engineering problems, such as heat exchangers in nuclear power plants, heating problems in power generation and propulsion, and aerodynamic heating. This survey indicates that the development of superconducting magnets may make the reduction of aerodynamic heating by magnetic means feasible, especially for re-entry from superorbital speeds.
