# Biglobal instabilities of compressible open-cavity flows

@article{Sun2017BiglobalIO, title={Biglobal instabilities of compressible open-cavity flows}, author={Yiyang Sun and Kunihiko Taira and Louis N. Cattafesta and Lawrence S. Ukeiley}, journal={Journal of Fluid Mechanics}, year={2017}, volume={826}, pages={270 - 301} }

The stability characteristics of compressible spanwise-periodic open-cavity flows are investigated with direct numerical simulation (DNS) and biglobal stability analysis for rectangular cavities with aspect ratios of $L/D=2$ and 6. This study examines the behaviour of instabilities with respect to stable and unstable steady states in the laminar regime for subsonic as well as transonic conditions where compressibility plays an important role. It is observed that an increase in Mach number…
