A MATHEMATICAL MODEL FOR THE FORMATION OF BEADED FIBERS IN ELECTROSPINNING

ABSTRACT
Beaded fibers are often observed in electrospinning. However, its formation mechanism is not well understood. A mathematical model for pulsation of the charged jets during spinning is proposed to reveal the phenomenon of beaded fibers, and the main factors for beaded fibers are elucidated.
