Magneto-fluid-dynamics (MFD) describes the interaction and coupling between the flow of a conducting fluid and an applied electromagnetic field. The purpose of this Lecture Series is to introduce MFD fundamentals and to report on the current state-of-the-art research for future aerospace applications. The lectures will begin with the fundamentals and governing equations of MFD and a historical perspective on relevant MFD research and developments. Subsequent lectures will address specific numerical and experimental applications of MFD, such as flow control, propulsion and energy management. International experts from Europe, Russia and the United States will discuss their respective activities in these areas.
