Abstract:

The steady flow is discussed of a slightly conducting, incompressible, inviscid fluid past a field obstacle in the presence of a very strong magnetic field perpendicular to the free stream. The obstacle is a finite insulator of general shape whose permeability is equal to that of the fluid. The following phases of the problem are treated equations of steady motion and their limiting forms, solution of the limit equations, compressing the y-coordinate, the source solution and its properties, determination of the complete solution, the drag on an ellipsoid.
