The Closed Loop MHD Research and Development Unit is in the final stages of preparation for the next test. Several minor modifications have been made in the over-all system, however, none of the basic features have been changed. Modifications primarily have been concerned with decreasing the heat losses from the system and increasing the heat input to the system so as to permit operation with working fluids at higher temperatures. Other modifications include instrumentation additions and refinements. A new closed loop duct with ceramic lined end returns has been partially fabricated. Author
