The stability of spiral flow between coaxial cylinders
Hydrodynamic stability, Reynolds number, Spiral flow, Taylor number
Computers and Mathematics with Applications
We investigate the hydrodynamic stability for the motion of a viscous incompressible fluid between two coaxial cylinders which move spirally along their common axis assuming that the gap between the cylinders is small and that the Reynolds number is small compared to the Taylor number. We use the variational method to derive a relation between the critical Taylor number and the Reynolds number. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
