There are several types of instabilities in fluid mechanics that lead to spontaneous chaotic mixing and intricate patterns. Classical examples include the Kelvin–Helmholtz instability in shear layers, the instability of Taylor–Couette flow between rotating cylinders and the Rayleigh-Bénard instability in thermal convection. More recently, a variety of two- and three-dimensional chaotic mixing phenomena have been observed in other geometries. Mixing in granular flows, unlike that in stirred… CONTINUE READING
