Abstract: The energy balance equation for an MHD flow inside a two-dimensional channel has been solved analytically considering walls of finite thickness. A Hartmann-like velocity profile and the electric density current obtained taking into account the electric conductivity of the walls are used in the convective, viscous, and Joule heating terms. The thermal conductivity of the walls is incorporated through the boundary conditions. The combined influence of both the physical and geometrical properties of the system a…
