We consider magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flows in a conducting rectangular duct with
a non-conducting flow channel insert (FCI) in a constant transverse magnetic field. The
computations based on the fully developed flow model are performed for three FCI mod-
ifications: (i) without pressure equalization openings, (ii) with the pressure equalization
slot (PES) in the FCI wall parallel and (iii) perpendicular to the applied magnetic field.
The computed flow patterns and the current circuits in the duct with the FCI are ana-
lyzed. The experiments are performed with In-Ga-Sn as a work fluid flowing in an outer
rectangular duct made of stainless steel with the FCI made of epoxy for two cases: FCI
