In this paper Enhanced Variational Iteration Method, EVIM is proposed, along with the BPES, for solving Bratu equation which appears in the particular elecotrospun nanofibers fabrication process framework. Elecotrospun organic nanofibers, with diameters less than 1/4 microns have been used in non-wovens and filtration industries for a broad range of filtration applications in the last decade. Electro-spinning process has been associated to Bratu equation through thermo-electro-hydrodynamics balance equations. Analytical solutions have been proposed, discussed and compared.
