# Three-Dimensional Instabilities in Flow Past a Rotating Cylinder

@article{Mittal2004ThreeDimensionalII, title={Three-Dimensional Instabilities in Flow Past a Rotating Cylinder}, author={Sanjay Mittal}, journal={Journal of Applied Mechanics}, year={2004}, volume={71}, pages={89-95} }

Flow past a spinning circular cylinder placed in a uniform stream is investigated via three-dimensional computations. A stabilized finite element method is utilized to solve the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in the primitive variables formulation. The Reynolds number based on the cylinder diameter and freestream speed of the flow is 200. The nondimensional rotation rate, α, (ratio of the surface speed and freestream speed) is 5. It is found that although the two-dimensional flow for…
