Capacitance of Right Angle plates

  1. Sep 28, 2009 #1
    I have a question:

    I have two plates that form a right angle. How would I go about finding the Capacitance of the two plates?

    I read that paper before. I really want to read Xiang's paper that the Barrachina paper uses to validate their model with. However, Xiang's paper costs $22 to read.

    Hello compton1-
    Smythe "Static and Dynamic Electricity" 3rd edition chapter 4 has lots of 2D examples solved by the Schwartz transformation.

    Another computational approach is the method of moments. Capacitance examples are given in both method of moment texts by Harrington and Walter Gibson.
