Abstract:

When an infinitely conducting gas flows in a plane in such a way that the velocity and magnetic fields are everywhere aligned, then the governing magnetohydrodynamic equations may be linearized by transforming to the hodograph plane. The problem may then be reduced to the solution of a second-order linear partial differential equation for the stream function. This Memorandum presents tabulated numerical solutions of this equation they should be of use to workers in the area of magnetohydrodynamics.
