Shapes of charged drops in an electric field and Rayleigh jets

Fontelos, M (ICMAT)

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


When a viscous drop is electrically charged or subject to an external electric field, it may undergo deformations and, occasionally produce thin jets (called Rayleigh jets) that are of practical interest. We study the drop's shapes and related bifurcation problems, as well as the possible mechanisms for jet formation.
