A critical Reynolds number for global instability of rotating disc flow

Lecture - Prof. Jonathan Healey, Keele University, Anglie, Institute of Thermomechanics AS CR, v. v. i., Dolejškova 5, Prague, director's meeting room (1st floor), May 15, 2012 (Tuesday),10:00-11:00

The flow set up by rotating a disc at constant angular velocity about its axis, in otherwise still fluid, is a classical problem in fluid mechanics. The resulting three-dimensional boundary layer is a useful model for the flow over swept wings and turbine blades.  »»»
