In this paper the author reviews methodology of a version of the global Galerkin that was developed and applied in a series of his earlier publications. The method is based on divergence-free basis functions satisfying all the linear and homogeneous boundary conditions. The functions are defined as linear superpositions of the Chebyshev polynomials of the first and second types that are combined in divergence free vectors. The description and explanations of treatment of boundary conditions…

TWO-AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL INSTABILITIES OF CONFINED FLOWS : NUMERICAL STUDY BY A GLOBAL GALERKIN METHOD

A version of the global Galerkin method applied to a wide range of hydrodynamic stability problems is described. The numerical algorithm is based on a non-orthogonal set of globally defined basis

A Petrov–Galerkin method for flows in cavities: enclosure of aspect ratio 8

A Petrov–Galerkin method for computations of fully enclosed flows is developed. It makes use of divergence‐free basis functions which also satisfy the boundary conditions for the velocity field. This

Numerical methods for convective hydrodynamic stability of swirling flows

The main goal of this paper is to develop a methodology for analyzing the swirling flows with helical vortex breakdown by means of linear stability analysis. For the case of high Reynolds numbers the
