The Naval Underwater Systems Center (NUSC) designed, built, and operated a Superconducting Electromagnetic Thruster (SCEMT) test facility in 1990. The test facility consists of four major components: the seawater tunnel, the 3.3 Tesla superconducting magnet, the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) test section including high current electrodes, and the control and instrumentation system. During the initial test series 29 tests were conducted at over 100 test conditions. MHD channel pressure increase… CONTINUE READING
