We compare the performances of a pseudospectral and a finite-volume method for the simulation of magnetohydrodynamic flows in a plane channel. Both Direct Numerical Simulations (DNS) and Large-Eddy Simulations (LES) are performed. The LES model implementation is validated for non-conductive flows. The application of the LES model in the case of flows subjected to low intensity magnetic fields is shown to be successful.
