A nonlinear small-deformation theory for transient droplet electrohydrodynamics

16 May 2016 Das Debasish Saintillan David

The deformation of a viscous liquid droplet suspended in another liquid and subject to an applied electric field is a classic multiphase flow problem best described by the Melcher-Taylor leaky dielectric model. The main assumption of the model is that any net charge in the system is concentrated on the interface between the two liquids as a result of the jump in Ohmic currents from the bulk... (read more)
