2 Objectives Conduct experimental and theoretical investigations to study the on-set of EHD turbulence for: cylinder in cross flow, and wire-plate geometry. Develop theoretical models based on the mass, momentum, and charged particle conservation equations coupled with the Poisson's equation for electric field. Evaluate instability in a flow system based on the time dependent term of the momentum equations. Demonstrate the EHD origin of the on-set of turbulence by the charge relaxation and electric fields using dimension analyses and experimental observations. Determine the criteria for the on-set of turbulence based on dimensionless numbers

15 Concluding Remarks Based on simple charge injection induced EHD flow model and experimental observations, we concluded that: 1.No significant flow modifications will be observed when Electric Rayleigh Number E hd << Re 2 ; 2.Forward wake is observed when E hd Re 2 due to the charge injection (EHD flow); 3.Small recirculation will be generated along the surface of cylinder from front to real stagnation points; 4.Flow wake deformation is observed when E hd Re 2 ; 5.Fully developed EHD wakes are observed when E hd >> Re 2 ; 6.On-set of vortex stream tails normally observed at Re > 80 can be generated even at lower Reynolds number when E hd > Re 2 ; 7.On-set of EHD turbulence is usually initiated downstream of the near real-stagnation point; 8.EHD turbulence can be generated even when Reynolds numbers based on the cylinder diameter are less than 0.2, if the EHD number is larger than Reynolds number square (E hd > Re 2 ) and the local Reynolds number based on velocity maximum exceeds critical Reynolds number based on flow channel (Re cw >> 2300); and 9.The electrical origin of instability leading to the on-set of turbulence can be estimated from E hd /Db 2 > Re 2 relation.
