Abstract

A general electrohydrodynamic model of a weakly conductive viscous jet accelerated by an external electric field is formulated taking into account inertial, hydrostatic, viscous, electric, and surface tension forces. Nonlinear rheologic constitutive equation (Oswald-deWaele law) is used to describe polymer fluid. One-dimensional differential equation for jet radius is derived and analyzed. Model predictions are in good agreement with experimental observations.
