Global flow instability in a lid-driven cavity

  title={Global flow instability in a lid-driven cavity},
  author={V. B. L. Boppana and Jiresh S. B. Gajjar},
The stability of flow in a lid-driven cavity is investigated using an accurate numerical technique based on a hybrid scheme with spectral collocation and high-order finite differences. A global stability analysis is carried out and critical parameters are identified for various aspect ratios. It is found that while there is reasonable agreement with the literature for the critical parameters leading to loss of stability for the square cavity, there are significant discrepancies for cavities of… CONTINUE READING
