Default mhdFoam - Hunt Case and boundary conditions

dbnrop is on a distinguished road

I have a problem to simulate the "Hunt Case" with the standard OpenFOAM-solver "mhdFoam". The Hunt Case is a 3D Channel with an electrical conducting fluid inside (e.g. x is the flow direction). Vertical to the flow direction is an constant and homogenous B-Field (y direction). At the Hunt Case there existsts two types of walls (Hartmann-walls with a perfect electrical conductivity and Side-Walls which are insulating). As a consequence, the B-Field "goes" into the Hartmann walls and but not into the side walls.

Is it possible to simulate this case with the mhdFoam? I have problems to set the boundary conditions (e.g. in the B-File).

Could anyone help me?
