Electrodynamics of liquid
Liquids form the basis of all life on Earth and are becoming increasingly more important each day. Environmental sciences, biology, chemistry, medicine and many other fields of modern science and industry depend on our understanding of liquids. Studying and controlling electrodynamic properties and processes in liquid substances opens new, practically unlimited, possibilities for using liquids.
The nature, our bodies, our needs and most of human activities are based on different liquid substances. That is why research of liquids is one of the most important directions in nature sciences.
Physico-chemical properties and processes in liquids are fairly well described, but there are quite a few partially or completely unstudied areas in electrodynamics of liquid (EDL).
Any liquid can be described as consisting of communicating and moving ions, micro and macro currents, static and dynamic electromagnetic fields, which together determine main characteristics and properties of every liquid. EDL is a promising direction of future scientific research which can significantly increase our knowledge and possibilities.
Electrodynamic characteristics of liquid
EDL has to be based on detailed study of electrodynamics of different liquids: from water and most known solutions to complex biological liquids. Main focus here has to be directed at determining and describing direct and single-valued multiple correlation between physico-chemical and electrodynamic parameters of different liquids.
Every change in composition, energy level and dynamics of liquid should be described and characterized with the correspondent change of its electrodynamic parameters.
We can use a lot of known facts from electrochemistry of liquids, but the approach has to be much wider so that not only electrostatic, but also electrodynamic and complex electromagnetic parameters of different liquids have to be studied, generalized and classified.
One of the most promising directions of research here is describing liquid using its complex electromagnetic conductivity, including active and reactive components for electric and magnetic fields within wide frequency range.
Known liquid conductivity measurements use only its active electrostatic component, while reactive and especially magnetic conductivity can provide much more data on liquid parameters.
First result of liquid electodynamics study has to be the creation of databases on main electrodynamic parameters of different liquids, describing their composition and typical processes.
Electrodynamic control of liquid properties
Complex EDL study and generalizing its correlation with main liquid parameters will allow for active control of liquid characteristics through external electrodynamic inputs. Electromagnetic energy as the widest used energy type opens practically unlimited possibilities.
In the past years thousands of publications and succesfull reports have appeared on magnetic treatment of liquids from scale prevention and agriculture to medicine and chemistry.
The U.S. State Department of Energy has recommended magnetic water treatment as the main energy saving and scale preventing method. Hundreds of companies worldwide produce millions of liquid magnetizing devices for different industrial and consumption applications.
All these known and used magnetic treatment principles for liquids have two common features: firstly they use a very limited range of electrodynamic inputs, mostly magnetostatic one; secondly they are all blind, being unable to evaluate the treatment results directly.
A second result of complex EDL study has to produce basics and concrete principles of active electrodynamic control over liquid substances, allowing wide range of electromagnetic control methods of liquid properties.
Self-adjusted control of liquid properties
EDL has to form a scientific base for creating new fundamental methods of liquid properties monitoring and control.
Important here is creating automatic control principles, based on continuous electrodynamic monitoring systems, analyzing the liquid and controlling its external electrodynamic treatments according to special algorithms.
In other words ideal liquid properties control system has to include electrodynamic sensors which constantly monitor all changes and processes inside liquid and generate necessary information and warning signals. These signals have to be used for controlling the external electromagnetic correction inputs.
Such self-adjusted system can include two sensoring modules for monitoring initial and resulting liquid electrodynamic state; cybernetic module for analyzing the information from sensors, creating and correcting the liquid control algorithm; and external electromagnetic liquid treatment module controlled by the above mentioned algorithm.
Third expected result of EDL development has to be creation of various self-adjusted systems for electrodynamic control over properties of main known liquids
Some possible EDL application areas
- Continuos water quality monitoring in artificial and natural reservoirs. Control over water purification processes for consumption and industrial needs
- Liquid properties control in chemical and power engineering. Chemical processes and liquid fuels efficiency increase
- Diagnostics and controlled therapy on biological liquids (blood…). Liquid medicines efficiency increase
- Continuous monitoring and water purification control in agriculture and food industry
Even a few above samples from thousands of possible EDL applications show extreme actuality and call for active and intensive efforts in this field, which should obviously lead to important and useful results.
Last years DVM has been performing and coordinating several international investigations on EDL for scale preventing, agriculture, biology, medicine…
Multidiscipline character of this field and extreme actuality call for continuous international investigation on electrodynamic properties of liquids.
