An index error in the numerical procedure calculating the ion density and the electric field was discovered. While the general concepts, the numerical method, and the main conclusions presented in the paper remain valid, the index error resulted in incorrect figures. The rectified plots and results are presented below.

The calculations are run for different values of applied voltage ranging from 3500 V to 5000 V. The solution for the electric field and the free charge density is presented in Figs. 1 and 2, respectively, for an applied voltage of 5000 V.

The body force applied on the fluid is the product of the electric field and the ion density. The magnitude of the body force in horizontal and vertical directions is shown in Figs. 3 and 4. The velocity profile at the entrance of the heat exchanger channel is shown in Fig....
