Default electrophoresis and finite volume
Posts: n/a
I am wondering if any of you know how to handle electrophoretic transport in a finite volume concentration solver. I've always thought (by reading SV Patankar) that upwinding, power law, etc., require a continuity-satisfying flow field. Electrophoretic velocity has nothing to do with continuity. However, I also don't think it can be put into a source term because it is a flux. Any thoughts? Thank you.

How about using writing all equations in a new co-ordinate moving with speed u_eph i.e. x_new=x_old-ueph*t?
