Experiments and numerical simulations are performed on the Rayleigh-Taylor instability with a complex acceleration history g(t) consisting of consecutive periods of acceleration, deceleration, and acceleration. The dominant bubbles and spikes that grow in the initial unstable phase are found to be shredded by the trailing structures during the stable… CONTINUE READING
