A magnetic field imposed on a flow of an electrically conducting fluid can profoundly change flow behavior. We consider this effect for the situation of laminar-turbulent transition in magnetohydrodynamic duct, pipe, and channel flows with homogeneous magnetic field and electrically insulating walls. Experimental and recent computational results obtained for flows in pipes, ducts and channels are reviewed.
