The hydrodynamic characteristics of Y- and Ψ-shaped channel of the MHD pump are studied both experimentally and numerically. Calculation of magnetic and hydrodynamic fields in MHD channels is performed. The pressure drop - flowrate characteristics of these fields are determined. The obtained data are compared with the results of physical experiments carried out using a gallium circuit. Figs 7, Refs 3.
