Thermoelectrokinetic Effect in Viscous Conductive Media


The article discusses the conditions, in which new thermoelectrokinetic and thermoelectromagnetic phenomena occur. They are cross phenomena emerging in the presence of mass, heat and electric charge transport in the electrically conductive medium. The thermoelectrokinetic and thermoelectromagnetic phenomena in the conditions much different from thermodynamic equilibrium are of particular interest. It is exemplified by the transport of the conductive medium mass, heat and electric charge occurs under the influence of the temperature gradient. As a result, self-organizing dynamic dissipative structures are formed. We provide the results of experimental observation of the new thermoelectrokinetic effect in the electroconductive fluid in an open system in the form of a U-shaped tube, through which the electroconductive fluid flows and in which the thermoelectrokinetic electric motion force arises in the presence of the temperature gradient. The obtained results reliably prove the existence of the new thermoelectrokinetic effect.
