We study numerically some possible vortex configurations in a rotating cylinder that is tilted with respect to the rotation axis and where different numbers of vortices can be present at given rotation velocity. In a long cylinder at small tilt angles the vortices tend to align along the cylinder axis and not along the rotation axis. We also show that the axial flow along the cylinder axis, caused by the tilt, will result in the Ostermeier-Glaberson instability above some critical tilt angle… CONTINUE READING
