The first bifurcation and the instability mechanisms of shear-thinning and shearthickening fluids flowing past a circular cylinder are studied using linear theory and numerical simulations. Structural sensitivity analysis based on the idea of a "wavemaker" is performed to identify the core of the instability. The shear-dependent viscosity is modeled by the Carreau model where the rheological parameters, the power-index and the material time constant, are chosen in the range 0.4 6 n 6 1.75 and 0… CONTINUE READING
