Needle-plane electrode system

This electrode system is a classical example of the electric field concentration near the sharp tip of the needle.

Problem Type:
Axisymmetric problem of electrostatics.

All dimensions in mm.

Relative permittivity of air ε = 1;
Needle potential U = 1 kV
Plate potential 0 V
