Modelling of Electrical Force
 
I'm trying to model Electric Force term for the case of Electrostatic Precipitator. To model this force i have to solve the Maxwell equation and the fundamental equation that negative gradient of voltage is electric field. I want to know that can we solve these two equations in the CFX with the continuity and momentum equations or should i solve both equations(computationaly) seperately and then implement data in the CFX. if we can not solve these equations in CFX then please tell me how to implement the data in the CFX.

thanks Prakash Verma

Check the CFX community pages. I believe there's a technical note out there for solving the electric field equations. The forces will have to be added as source terms on your fluid.
