Secondary instability in the wake of a circular cylinder
UNSPECIFIED. (1996) Secondary instability in the wake of a circular cylinder. PHYSICS OF FLUIDS, 8 (6). pp. 1683-1685. ISSN 1070-6631Full text not available from this repository.
Secondary instability of flow past a circular cylinder is examined using highly accurate numerical methods. The critical Reynolds number for this instability is found to be Re-c = 188.5. The secondary instability leads to three-dimensionality with a spanwise wavelength at onset of 4 cylinder diameters. Three-dimensional simulations show that this bifurcation is weakly subcritical.
