Symmetry plan behavior
When using a symmetry plan to model a sphere, I have a non symmetric potential : the electric field near the spacecraft surface is stronger along the symmetry plan than perpendicular to this symmetry plan

comment by Jean-Francois Roussel - 04 May 05 11:51 PM Could you please clarify (or send a plot) ? When there is a symmetry plane, the electric field is zero perpendicularly to the symmetry plan, so it is expected that it be "stronger along the symmetry plan than perpendicular to this symmetry plan", since something > zero. Another remark: symmetry may not be perfect due to asymmetries in meshing and/or charge density, so that you may get something non zero but small for the normal electric field (what you may be getting, from what I understand from the question).
