 August 1, 2002, 02:24 Re: electrostatic force-UDF ? #2 Lanre Guest   Posts: n/a The magnitude of the electrostatic force is F_sub_E= qE, where E is the magnitude of the electric field and q is the charge on the particle. The electric field strength must be known. You can set constant or use a UDF to compute or apply a variable electric field. See http://www.fluentusers.com/fluent6/d...dpm-body-force for a similar example with a magnetic force

This is my first time to add electrostatic field and add electric force to charged particles. I added the field using UDS, and want to add the force with UDF. The equation is F = E*Q. Currently I am thinking of the constant Q, and to add this in the function. E will be from the user defined scalar. If it answers your question? Thanks,
