Electric and Hydrodynamic Fields Distribution in an Electrohydrodynamic Pump


Article Preview

A numerical simulation of electric and hydrodynamic field’s distribution in an electrohydrodynamic pump is made, with the mean to simulate and to determine numerically the liquid pressure and velocity. Different parameters of the pump are analyzed.
