Abstract : Magnetohydrodynamic machines are examined from the subject of hydraulics. Familiar studies on the motion of viscous incompressible fluid in pipes and in the boundary layer, including flows in the presence of a magnetic field, are generalized with respect to the flows in the circulatory system of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) machines. Methods of calculating these flows are stated. New results of theoretical and experimental studies on the hydraulic properties of linear MHD machines are given. (Author)
