In this investigation we perform a systematic computational search for potential singularities in 3D Navier-Stokes flows based on the Ladyzhenskaya-Prodi-Serrin conditions. They assert that if the quantity ∫ T 0 ‖u(t)‖pLq(Ω) dt, where 2/p+ 3/q ≤ 1, q > 3, is bounded, then the solution u(t) of the Navier-Stokes system is smooth on the interval [0, T ]. In other words, if a singularity should occur at some time t ∈ [0, T ], then this quantity must be unbounded. We have probed this condition by…
