ELECTROHYDRODYNAMICS CASTELLANOS PDF

If the electrodes are free to move within the fluid, while keeping their distance fixed from each other, then such a force will actually propel the electrodes with respect to the fluid. Electrokinesis has also been observed in biology, where it was found to cause physical damage to neurons by inciting movement in their membranes. Water electrokinetics[ edit ] In October , Dr. Daniel Kwok, Dr. Larry Kostiuk and two graduate students from the University of Alberta discussed a method of hydrodynamic to electrical energy conversion by exploiting the natural electrokinetic properties of a liquid such as ordinary tap water , by pumping fluids through tiny micro-channels with a pressure difference.

Water electrokinetics[ edit ] In October , Dr. Daniel Kwok, Dr. Larry Kostiuk and two graduate students from the University of Alberta discussed a method of hydrodynamic to electrical energy conversion by exploiting the natural electrokinetic properties of a liquid such as ordinary tap water , by pumping fluids through tiny micro-channels with a pressure difference.

Pressure would then be released on demand, for fluid flow to take place over the micro-channels. When water travels, or streams over a surface, the ions of which water is made "rub" against the solid, leaving the surface slightly charged. Kinetic energy from the moving ions would thus be converted to electrical energy. Although the power generated from a single channel is extremely small, millions of parallel micro-channels can be used to increase the power output. This streaming potential , water-flow phenomenon was discovered in by German physicist Georg Hermann Quincke.

However, heterogeneous ionic conductivity fields in the presence of applied electric fields can, under certain conditions, generate an unstable flow field owing to electrokinetic instabilities EKI. Conductivity gradients are prevalent in on-chip electrokinetic processes such as preconcentration methods e.

The dynamics and periodic morphology of electrokinetic instabilities are similar to other systems with Rayleigh—Taylor instabilities. These instabilities are caused by a coupling of electric fields and ionic conductivity gradients that results in an electric body force. This coupling results in an electric body force in the bulk liquid, outside the electric double layer , that can generate temporal, convective, and absolute flow instabilities. Electrokinetic flows with conductivity gradients become unstable when the electroviscous stretching and folding of conductivity interfaces grows faster than the dissipative effect of molecular diffusion.

Since these flows are characterized by low velocities and small length scales, the Reynolds number is below 0. The onset of instability in these flows is best described as an electric "Rayleigh number".

It can also refer to fictional superpowers to manipulate electricity. Electrohydrodynamics and dielectrophoresis in microsystems: Kinetic energy from the moving ions would thus be converted to electrical energy. Electrokinesis was first observed by Ferdinand Frederic Reuss duringin the electrophoresis of clay particles [2] The effect was castellaanos noticed and publicized in the s by Thomas Townsend Brown which he called the Biefeld—Brown effectalthough he seems to have castfllanos it as an electric field acting on gravity. The electric field generates heat, leading to volume forces in the liquid.
