In plane Couette flow, the incompressible fluid between two plane parallel walls is driven by the motion of those walls. The laminar solution, in which the streamwise velocity varies linearly in the wall-normal direction, is known to be linearly stable at all Reynolds numbers (Re). Yet, in both experiments and computations, turbulence is observed for Re & 360. In this article, we show that when the laminar flow is perturbed on to the transition threshold, the flow approaches either steady or… CONTINUE READING
