The flow of incompressible, viscous, electrically conducting fluids in circular pipes in the presence of an applied transverse magnetic field is analyzed theoretically and experimentally. The relations among the Hartmann number, the Poiseuille number, skin friction coefficient, the Reynolds number, sensitivity, and wall conductivity are discussed. The experimental results using carbon pipe, stainless-steel pipe, and glass pipe are in good agreement with theoretical calculations.
