A numerical method is successfully developed for solving general MHD duct flow problems, utilizing “machine transformation” and finite-difference technique with a new successive overrelaxation procedure. Examples are given to establish the method and to indicate the versatility of the associated computer program. The generality of the basic principle may help to solve many problems other than MHD flow in a general domain.
