A theoretical analysis of the operating characteristics of a peristaltic magneto-fluid dynamic induction compressor is made. Then, an evaluation of the feasibility of using the compressor as an element of a jet-propulsion system for undersea craft is performed. The results of the feasibility study indicate that the compressor has the potential to provide the necessary pressure rise required to propel large and small craft for reasonable current inputs in the primary driving circuitry. Part 2 will appear in the June issue.
