Abstract : The influence is investigated of an axial magnetic field on the flow properties and heat transfer characteristics of a partially ionized gas in a cylindrical flow channel. Work performed includes assembly and calibration of the experimental equipment, results of heat transfer measurements as a function of magnetic field strength, experimental determination of flow parameters in the channel, and a theoretical description of the problem along with a correlation with experimental results.
