The flow instabilities of Rayleigh-Bénard convection in a cylinder with effect of uniform internal heat source are investigated numerically. The instabilities of the static state and of axisymmetric flows are investigated by linear stability analysis. The convection threshold depends on the strength of internal heat source q and the aspect ratio of the(More)
The instabilities and transitions of flow in an annular container with a heated bottom, a cooled top, and insulated sidewalls are studied numerically. The instabilities of the static diffusive state and of axisymmetric flows are investigated by linear stability analysis. The onset of convection is independent of the Prandtl number but determined by the(More)
We present the application of Harten-Lax-van Leer (HLL)-type solvers on Riemann problems in nonlinear elasticity which undergoes high-load conditions. In particular, the HLLD ("D" denotes Discontinuities) Riemann solver is proved to have better robustness and efficiency for resolving complex nonlinear wave structures compared with the HLL and HLLC ("C"(More)
In this paper we investigate linear transient growth of perturbation energy in Taylor-Couette flow of a Bingham fluid. The effects of yield stress on transient growth and the structure of the optimal perturbation are mainly considered for both the wide-gap case and the narrow-gap case. For this purpose we complement the linear stability of this flow(More)
