In this paper, a kind of new meshless method, two-level radial point interpolation method, has been developed to analyze the fully developed liquid-metal Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow under the externally applied magnetic field in a circular duct with thin conducting walls. This method applied the radial point interpolation method (RPIM) to solve the two levels Galerkin weak form formulations. As the shape functions from RPIM possess Kronecker delta function properties, the essential boundary conditions of MHD flow problems are easily to be enforced. Numerical simulations of MHD flow in the circular duct with partial conducting walls are carried out, showing that the method is very stable in the computation.
