Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1195360
Description: Imparting a sudden rotation to a torus (or other symmetric smooth object) in an otherwise quiescent, viscous fluid serves to generate boundary layers at the object’s surface. These boundary layers are ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1047419
Description: The stability of an almost inviscid compressible fluid flowing over a rigid heated surface is considered. We focus on the boundary layer that arises. The effect of surface heating is known to induce a ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1044787
Description: We consider the behaviour of the flow within a fluid-filled torus when there is a sudden change in the rotation rate of the torus. Experimental work on this problem by Madden & Mullin (J. Fluid Mech., ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1050623
Description: We consider the flow induced by a sphere, contained in an otherwise quiescent body of fluid, that is suddenly imparted with angular momentum. This classical problem is known to exhibit a finite-time s ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1044015
Description: The free-surface flow of very steep forced and unforced solitary waves is considered. The forcing is due to a distribution of pressure on the free surface. Four types of forced solution are identified ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1047396
Description: We consider the development of Dean vortices in a curved channel of finite aspect ratio. Solutions to the axisymmetric Navier-Stokes equations are obtained through a finite-element analysis, allowing ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1047391
Description: We investigate the Dean instability for a generalised Newtonian fluid which satisfies an approximately power-law viscosity model, albeit modified to incorporate a low-shear Newtonian plateau. Infinite ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1047422
Description: We consider the decay to rest of initially laminar flow within the end region of a suddenly blocked pipe. Here the flow is dominated by two temporally developing boundary layers, one on the pipe wall ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1047428
Description: A spatio-temporal inviscid instability of a mixed forced-free convection boundary layer is investigated. The base flow considered is the self-similar flow with free-stream velocity uₑ ∼ xn. Such a bou ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1047992
Description: Pressure-driven viscous flow through a rigid curved pipe of uniform circular cross-section which is suddenly stopped, for example through the instantaneous closure of a valve, is considered here. The ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/1047996
Description: This paper considers the decay of Poiseuille flow within a suddenly blocked pipe. For small to moderate times the flow is shown to consist of an inviscid core flow coupled with a boundary layer at the ... More
