Abstract: Complex variable technique is used to study steady plane orthogonal magnetohydrodynamic flows of a viscous incompressible fluid of finite electrical conductivity. The problem of determining all possible flows such that the streamlines and their orthogonal trajectories form an isometric net is investigated.
