Spin-up from rest in a stratified fluid : boundary flows

    Abstract

    We present the results of an integrated experimental, numerical and theoretical examination of spin-up from rest of a stratified fluid. A vertical cylindrical container of radius R and height 2H containing fluid of viscosity ν and characterized by a constant buoyancy frequency N is set impulsively to rotate about its symmetry axis with angular speed Ω = f/2… (More)
