Abstract:

The basic equations describing the two-dimensional steady inviscid flow of a magnetogasdynamic fluid with anisotropic electrical conductivity are transformed into a more convenient form by the introduction of a current flux function. A method is presented for determining the electrodynamic field variables when the gasdynamic variables velocity, temperature, pressure, etc.ARE CONSTANT. The meth d is sufficiently general that it may be applied to cases with arbitrary configurations and variable magnetic induction. The method is applied to the calculation of the field variables of a segmented-wall magnetogasdynamic generator with uniform applied magnetic induction. Results of typical calculations are presented.
