2:00pm to 3:00pm
Add to Cal
Spalding Laboratory 106 (Hartley Memorial Seminar Room)
Professor Ehud Yariv, Shocks and Caps in Drop Electrohydrodynamics,

Professor Ehud Yariv will present: Shocks and Caps in Drop Electrohydrodynamics

In this talk, we will employ numerical and asymptotic tools to explore the effects of interfacial-charge convection, which were neglected by Taylor but become important at strong electric fields. In particular, we will analyze (in 2D, for simplicity) how Taylor's fore-aft symmetric solution evolves as the electrical Reynolds number is increased from zero to arbitrarily large values. What we shall find is hinted by the title of the talk.
