Article Preview

Experiments have been performed to observe the kinematics of multi-droplet moving in a stationary emulsion exposed to a horizontal electric field of different magnitude. The droplet motion is recorded by a high-speed CCD camera. A Lagrangian framework is outlined to simulate the kinematics of multi-droplet by means of cluster integration method. The droplet size distributions computed are qualitatively consistent with the experimental picture. It is clarified from computation that the effect of the electric field intensity and the viscosity of the oil on the droplet motion.
