A lubrication analysis is presented for the spreading dynamics of a high permittivity polar dielectric liquid drop due to an electric field sustained by parallel line electrode pairs separated by a distance R(e). The normal Maxwell stress, concentrated at the tip region near the apparent three-phase contact line, produces a negative capillary pressure that is responsible for pulling out a thin finger of liquid film ahead of the macroscopic drop, analogous to that obtained in self-similar… CONTINUE READING
