Abstract

Stationary plane flow of a conducting gas across a magnetic field in a magnetohydrodynamic channel of constant cross section made up of electrodes of finite length and insulators is considered in the linear approximation. It is assumed that the electromagnetic forces are small. It is shown that the current density increases near the exit from the interelectrode gap with increasing magnetic Reynolds number. The mutual influence of the Hall parameter and of the magnetic Reynolds number on the distribution of the currents in the channel is investigated.
