Examination of disintegration processes occurring with charged liquid jets has continued. Jets of various Freon blends were employed to establish the range of liquid electrical conductivity for which specifically electrical influences on jet disintegration and drop formation occur. The study also provided additional data to supplement analysis of jet instability configurations and to facilitate extension of the theory of electrified jets. A general analysis of the instabilities associated with electrified jets was accomplished. Comparison of this theory was made with the limiting axisymmetric case m 0 for which analysis had already been developed. Computations were also carried out for nonaxisymmetric cases, and comparison made with experimentally obtained results. Finally, apparatus for the determination of self-charging of low conductivity liquids in complex flow systems was designed. Fabrication of this apparatus was completed. Author
