(Color online) Electrode configuration, E electric field lines, and u streamlines. With such asymmetrical electrode configuration, an electrohydrodynamic flow is generated between the electrodes leading to non-zero flow rate inside the channel. The inlet and outlet pressures are maintained identical.
(Color online) Comparison of streamlines between (a) the experiment and (b) the numerical results. The working fluid was dodecane mixed with 3 wt. % of SPAN 85 and the applied voltage was 1.1 kV at 30 Hz.
Dependency of averaged flow velocity on (a) voltage at f = 110 Hz and (b) frequency at V = 3 kV.
