The purpose of the report is to present the detailed as well as critical review of some mathematical and physical aspects of the MHD flow. This review should benefit the beginning investigators in this field. First, the details of the pioneering work by Hartmann and Lazarus on the subject of channel flow are described. The modified Hartmann flow with the electrical conductance of walls investigated by Chang and Lundgren, and by Chang and Yen are then reviewed. The effect of electrical conductance of the walls for both the thermally and hydrodynamically fully developed region was investigated very recently by Alpher, Yen, and Snyder. While their treatments are reviewed generally, only Snyders approach is presented in detail.
