Electrohydrodynamics—abbreviated EHD—is concerned with interactions of electric fields and free or bound (polarization) change in fluids. The electrical conductivity of such fluids may range from that of extremely good insulators (dielectrics) to that the electromagnetic part of the system is described by a quasi–static electric fields model: the dynamic currents are so small that the influence of the magnetic induction is negligible.
