Electroconvection of liquid dielectrics

  • 35 Accesses


Ponderomotive forces, which are responsible for electroconvection, were investigated in relation to the properties of the liquid and the strength of the electric field of an infinite charged plate. The obtained solutions were used to obtain a parameter of the relative intensification of heat transfer in various dielectrics in an external electrostatic field.
