The experimental results on the inertialess MHD-flows in a strong magnetic field are presented. Complex shaped duct flows with regular roughless walls and free-surface MHD-flows are investigated. The limits of inertialess Stokes flow existence are defined; the general asymptotic relations typical for inertialess flows with high Hartmann number are obtained.
