Title: Analytical and experimental studies of the helical magnetohydrodynamic thruster design

Abstract

This paper describes the results of analytical and experimental studies of a helical magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) seawater thruster using a 8-Tesla (T) solenoid magnet. The application of this work is in marine vehicle propulsion. Analytical models are developed to predict the performance of the helical MHD thruster in a closed-loop condition. The analytical results are compared with experimental data and good agreement is obtained.
