- Published 2007

This paper is concerned with the existence of local absolute instability in the boundary-layer flow over the outer surface of a rotating cone, thereby extending earlier work by Lingwood who considered the rotating disk. Both still outer fluids and non-zero axial flow are considered, viscous and streamline-curvature effects are included, and the analysis is conducted for a wide range of cone half-angles, ψ . In still outer fluid our predicted local Reynolds numbers at the onset of absolute… CONTINUE READING
