Abstract

A nonlinear model has been developed to assess the time-dependent evolution of liquid surfaces exposed to electrostatic forces. The model presumes the liquids are perfect conductors and are inviscid. A fully 4th-order nonlinear, coupled free surface treatment has been applied; nodes are redistributed at equal intervals using splines and a Runge-Kutta time integration scheme is employed. Results have been obtained for both droplets and liquid columns undergoing nonlinear oscillations and electrostatically-induced breakup.
