Abstract

This paper undertakes a fundamental analysis of the electrodynamic and hydrodynamic equations governing gas-solid flows in the presence of an electric field. Nondimensionalization of the applicable Navier-Stokes equation indicates the circumstances in which the presence of charged particles may significantly affect the magnitude of the rotational component of the electric body force. Mechanisms for vorticity and turbulence production by particulate space charge are discussed in terms of the turbulent flow energy balance equations and the physical constraints imposed in electrostatic precipitators.
