Abstract : A magnetohydrodynamic test facility using a superconducting electromagnet to drive a hydrodynamic test loop is disclosed. The test facility has a pretreatment section for adjusting the salinity of seawater to be used in the flow loop a flow loop section having a test section, a magnetohydrodynamic pump, and a gas trap assembly to capture any gasses evolved from the seawater. A post-treatment section neutralizes evolved chlorine gasses.
