  • Abstract The energy gradient theory is used to study the instability of Taylor–Couette flow between concentric rotating cylinders. This theory has been proposed in our previous works. In our previous studies, the energy gradient theory was demonstrated to be applicable for wall-bounded parallel flows. It was found that the critical value of the energy gradient parameter K max at turbulent transition is about 370–389 for wall-bounded parallel flows (which include plane Poiseuille flow, pipe… CONTINUE READING
