Abstract:

An analytical investigation of the motion of ions in a fluid was conducted to provide insight in the use of ions as a fluid flow diagnostic tool. Assuming small space charge density, potential fields and flows were considered. The specific cases studied were fine corona wire to a circular cylinder. Both steady and nonsteady flows were considered, and the trajectories of the ions leaving the corona wire were mapped.
