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

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
