A novel non-conforming axisymmetric finite element scheme is presented and used for the calculation of the deformations of electrically charged viscous micro-droplets over time. After an initial examination of the solution convergence with mesh refinement for the Stokes system, the full Navier–Stokes equations are then solved in a predictor–corrector iterative fashion with moving meshes for the prolate and oblate deformations of droplets charged to, and beyond, the critical Rayleigh limit.
