Abstract

A relation between the Strouhal number and the degree of constriction of the channel is derived on the basis of the equations of ordinary hydrodynamics for plane flow past a cylinder. An experimental investigation of the relation obtained gives good agreement with the theory. A study of the effect of a transverse magnetic field on the Strouhal number and flow stability in the wake is used as a basis for an attempt to take the channel wall effect into account in calculating the dimensionless criteria for MHD flow.
