Nonlinear electrohydrodynamic Rayleigh-Taylor instability is investigated. A charge-free surface separating two semi-infinite dielectric fluids influenced by a normal electric field is subjected to nonlinear deformations. We use the method of multiple-scale perturbations in order to obtain uniformly valid expansions near the cutoff wavenumber separating stable from unstable flows. We obtain two nonlinear Schrodinger equations by means of which we can deduce the cutoff wavenumber and analyse the… CONTINUE READING
