On a local predictor of shear instability and the initiation of local turbulence

On a local predictor of shear instability and the initiation of local turbulence The stability of a local laminar shear flow and its transition into turbulent flow is considered as a local phenomenon. This transition may remain local, in which case the flow field is partially laminar and partially turbulent, or it may spread and make the whole field turbulent. One of the applications of this analysis is the prediction of local heat-convection rates, which are enhanced by local turbulence. Another application is in heart-lung blood pumps, where excessive shear rates are detrimental to red blood cells. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Engineering Mathematics Springer Journals

Abstract

The stability of a local laminar shear flow and its transition into turbulent flow is considered as a local phenomenon. This transition may remain local, in which case the flow field is partially laminar and partially turbulent, or it may spread and make the whole field turbulent. One of the applications of this analysis is the prediction of local heat-convection rates, which are enhanced by local turbulence. Another application is in heart-lung blood pumps, where excessive shear rates are detrimental to red blood cells.
