In this paper, the stability of inviscid parallel flow between two parallel walls is studied. Firstly, it is obtained that the profile of the base flow for this classical problem is a uniform flow. Secondly, it is shown that the solution of the disturbance equation is cr=U and ci=0, i.e., the propagation speed of the disturbance equals the flow velocity and the disturbance in this flow is neutral. Finally, it is suggested that the classical Rayleigh Theorem on inflectional velocity instability…

Criteria Of Turbulent Transition In Parallel Flows
Based on the energy gradient method, criteria for turbulent transition are proposed for pressure driven flow and shear driven flow, respectively. For pressure driven flow, the necessary and

Experimental Observation of Nonlinear Traveling Waves in Turbulent Pipe Flow
Experimental observation of unstable traveling waves in pipe flow is reported, confirming the proposed transition scenario and suggesting that the dynamics associated with these unstable states may indeed capture the nature of fluid turbulence.

Finite-amplitude thresholds for transition in pipe flow
We report the results of an experimental study of the finite-amplitude thresholds for transition to turbulence in a constant mass flux pipe flow. The flow was perturbed using small impulsive jets and

Laminar-to-turbulent transition of pipe flows through puffs and slugs
Laminar-to-turbulent transition of pipe flows occurs, for sufficiently high Reynolds numbers, in the form of slugs. These are initiated by disturbances in the entrance region of a pipe flow, and grow
