A general method was developed for the analysis of one-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic channel flow problems. The basic differential equations for one-dimensional flow (influence coefficient equations) are discussed, and it is shown how the magnetohydrodynamic body force and joule heating are included. Methods are also presented for including the effects of area change, external heat exchange and wall friction; approximate methods for including real gas effects are mentioned. The resulting set of equations was programmed for solution on the IBM 7070 digital computer. A description of the computer program is given, and the complete Fortran listing of the main program and subroutines is presented. The accuracy of the program was checked by duplicating existing analytic or numerical solutions. Several typical calculations are presented as examples of the range of application of the method.
