On the stability of heterogeneous shear flows

- J. Miles
- Physics
- 1 June 1961

Small perturbations of a parallel shear flow U(y) in an inviscid, incompressible fluid of variable density ρ 0 (y) are considered. It is deduced that dynamic instability of statically stable flows (… Expand

On the generation of surface waves by shear flows

- J. Miles
- Physics
- 1 November 1957

A mechanism for the generation of surface waves by a parallel shear flow U ( y ) is developed on the basis of the inviscid Orr-Sommerfeld equation. It is found that the rate at which energy is… Expand

Design and Ground Calibration of the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI) Instrument on the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO)

- J. Schou, P. Scherrer, +18 authors S. Tomczyk
- Physics
- 2012

The Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager (HMI) investigation (Solar Phys. doi:10.1007/s11207-011-9834-2, 2011) will study the solar interior using helioseismic techniques as well as the magnetic field… Expand

Note on a heterogeneous shear flow

- J. Miles, L. N. Howard
- Physics
- 1 October 1964

Goldstein (1931) has considered the stability of a shear layer within which the velocity and the density vary linearly and outside which they are constant. Rayleigh (1880, 1887) had found that the… Expand

EARLY SCIENCE WITH SOFIA, THE STRATOSPHERIC OBSERVATORY FOR INFRARED ASTRONOMY

- E. Young, E. Becklin, +38 authors H. Zinnecker
- Physics
- 20 April 2012

The Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) is an airborne observatory consisting of a specially modified Boeing 747SP with a 2.7 m telescope, flying at altitudes as high as 13.7 km… Expand

Nonlinear surface waves in closed basins

- J. Miles
- Physics
- 11 June 1976

The Lagrangian and Hamiltonian for nonlinear gravity waves in a cylindrical basin are constructed in terms of the generalized co-ordinates of the free-surface displacement, { q n ( t )} ≡ q , thereby… Expand

Resonantly interacting solitary waves

- J. Miles
- Physics
- 20 January 1977

Resonant (phase-locked) interactions among three obliquely oriented solitary waves are studied. It is shown that such interactions are associated with the parametric end points of the singular regime… Expand

Obliquely interacting solitary waves

- J. Miles
- Physics
- 20 January 1977

Nonlinear oblique interactions between two slightly dispersive gravity waves (in particular, solitary waves) of dimensionless amplitudes α 1 and α 2 (relative to depth) and relative inclination 2ϕ… Expand
