Direct numerical simulations of two-layer viscosity-stratified flow

Abstract

Two-dimensional simulations of flow instability at the interface of a two-layer, density-matched, viscosity-stratified Poiseuille flow are performed using a front-tracking/finite difference method. We present results for the small-amplitude (linear) growth rate of the instability at small to medium Reynolds number for varying thickness ratio n, viscosity… (More)
