Rolling detachment of micro particles in turbulent flows under the presence of electrostatic and capillary forces was studied. The maximum adhesion resistance model and the effective thermodynamic work of adhesion including the effects of electrostatic and capillary forces were used in the analysis. The JKR and DMT models for elastic interface deformations and the Maugis-Pollock model for the plastic deformation were extended to include the effect of electrostatic and capillary forces. The turbulence burst model was used to evaluate the airflow velocity near the substrate. The critical shear velocities for removal of particles of different sizes were evaluated and the results were compared with those without electrostatic and capillary forces. The relative critical shear velocities as well as the material dependence were also studied. The effect of the direction of the combined Coulomb force was also included. The predictions of the electric detachment fields for particles were compared with the available experimental data and good agreement was observed.
