The objective of the current MHD acceleration study is to thoroughly explain the compact experimental demo of MHD accelerator and to clarify some significant plasma variables both within and at the exit of the newly introduced mullite ceramic compact channel. The significant challenge of the current study is to use the 0.4tesla neodymium magnetic as an MHD source, while the model rocket engine (C60,ESTES) is introduced and employed as a gas (plasma) source. The results of present demonstrations reveal that the highest gas velocity was calculated at 117.2m/s using the gas pressure measurement through the pitot tube. The TOF method using two photo diodes showed the slowest speed of 50m/s. © 2011 The Japan Society of Plasma Science and Nuclear Fusion Research.
