Joule loss due to compressibility of gas in a channel of variable section

  • A. B. Vatazhin


It is known that closed electric currents arise in a conducting medium moving in a non-uniform magnetic field. These currents lead to additional energy loss and adversely affect the characteristics of magnetohydrodynamic channels. (The numerous investigations of these effects are dealt with in the review [2, 3].) Eddy electric currents are also formed, however, when a medium flows in a uniform magnetic field perpendicular to the to the plane of motion if the channel has a variable cross section and the medium is compressible [1], This paper is devoted to an investigation of some features of these flows. It is assumed in the analysis that the gas flows in channels whose geometry varies slightly.
