In this paper, we present numerical and experimental studies of the behavior of a liquid metal jet in a constant and gradient magnetic field. The experiments were conducted in the Magnetic Torus Liquid Metal MHD flow test facility (MTOR). The experimental results have shown that free jets can be stabilized by the magnetic field. The Lorentz force significantly suppresses the motion of the liquid metal jet and delays the break-up position. Analysis based on linear theory has been applied to understand jet behavior under magnetic fields. In addition, numerical simulation based on B formulation has been performed and compared to the experimental results.
