Abstract The problem of fully developed, laminar, steady, forced convection heat transfer in an electrically conducting fluid flowing in an electrically insulated, horizontal, circular pipe (whose wall is subjected to a uniform heat flux) in a vertical uniform transverse magnetic field has been considered numerically. The central difference scheme is employed in the analysis. For high Hartmann numbers (100 •& M •& 500), the refinement of the mesh in the radial direction is necessary in order to handle the effect of the Hartmann boundary layer. To have a convergent solution, under-relaxation is needed for high M. A considerable number of results for MFM forced convection are obtained. All the results (i.e. velocity and temperature distributions and heat transfer), in general, are in a good agreement with the previous work. en_US
