Partially ionized fluids can gain net momentum under an electric field, as charged particles undergo momentum-transfer collisions with neutral molecules in a phenomenon termed an ionic wind. Electrohydrodynamic thrusters generate thrust by using two or more electrodes to ionize the ambient fluid and create an electric field. In this thesis, electrohydrodynamic thrusters of singleand dual-stage configurations were tested. Single-stage thrusters refer to a geometry employing one emitter electrode… CONTINUE READING
