Abstract : The steady, supersonic, barotropic, and inviscid flow of a rarefied gas plasma through an axisymmetric crossed-field device (imposed axial electric field and radial magnetic induction) is being analyzed, for arbitrary values of the Hall parameter. A previously developed perturbation method is used to obtain closed form solutions for the electric current density, flow velocity, and mass density within the annular duct. Conditions for optimal values of the Hall parameter are given. (Author)
