Abstract : The turbulent boundary layer of an MHD-flow over a flat plate is analyzed. The applied magnetic field is assumed to be transverse to the flow, with all induced effects neglected. The shear stress and the flow enthalpy are expressed as quadratic profiles of the boundary layer coordinate and velocity. The electric conductivity is assumed constant and the electric field component in the cross flow direction is neglected. Solutions are obtained for the skin friction coefficient, both with and without the pressure gradients using the momentum integral method. Although the equations are given for a compressible flow, solutions are obtained only for incompressible flows. (Author)
