Abstract:

A review is presented of a number of papers examining the flow conditions in a magnetic laval nozzle. The author writes the general equations describing the system and discusses the assumptions made by the various investigators. Among the most important are the assumptions for linearization and the value of the various non-dimensional parameters. A literature survey is given concerning the channeling effect of a magnetic field in a plasma with infinite and finite electrical conductivity. Author
