This is the second year-end report on the EHD contract. Whereas previous work concentrated on building up the experimental facility and on delineating the effects of turbulence on breakdown, this work details the effects of turbulence on charged particle mobility. The two-phase injector is used exclusively. Spectral measurements of velocity and collector current are reported. These are used to determine the potential use of EHD in anemometry and to deduce particle size distributions. Measurements of charge distribution are also reported and a comparison is made between these and the spectral measurements. Equations defining an axisymmetric , turbulent EHD flow have been derived. Also, the feasibility of flow separation control with an EHD interaction has been investigated.

Performance of the self referencing interferometer in the presence of simulated deep turbulence and noise effects Johnson, Lee T. (Monterey, California: Naval Postgraduate School, 2013-12);Current laser weapon systems are limited to close range encounters because the laser beam attenuates quickly within the atmosphere. A phenomenon known as deep turbulence is characterized by strong scintillation and branch ...

(Livermore, California. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, 1998-04);The measurement sensitivity of C02 differential absorption LIDAR (DIAL) can be affected by a number of different processes. We will address the interaction of two of these processes: effects due to beam propagation through ...
