Formation of curvature singularities on the interface between dielectric liquids in a strong vertical electric field.

Abstract

The nonlinear dynamics of the interface between two deep dielectric fluids in the presence of a vertical electric field is studied. We consider the limit of a strong external electric field where electrostatic forces dominate over gravitational and capillary forces. The nonlinear integrodifferential equations for the interface motion are derived under the… (More)
