electric field
I am trying to simulate the arc motion of a low voltage switchgear. That means I have to simulate both electric field and air flow. Has anybody ever tried to simulate an electric field?

Re: electric field
I have simulated an electric field in CFX 4. In CFX 5 not yet, but I have someone seen doing it. Thus, it is possible.

Hello Everyone!

Does anybody have a testexample of a simulation of an electric field?

Thank you!!!

Re: electric field
Contact CFX in Berlin. They have experience with solving the electric field in CFX 5.

Electric Field

I have an electric field due to 2 cylindrical probes .so I want to add a voltage to 2 probe.Can I do it by MHD panel?

When I add 220 to one probe and 0 to another one fluent doesn't show me the electric field vectors
