Definition

Electrohydrodynamics (EHD) is the study of the dynamics of electrically charged fluids. (It is also sometimes referred to as electro-fluid-dynamics (EFD), electrokinetics, or Electokinetics.) These dynamics are the motions of ionised particles and/or molecules and their interactions with electric fields and the surrounding fluid. Transport mechanisms relating to EHD include electrophoresis and electro-osmosis.
