Vortex Instability and Transient Growth

Abstract

The dynamics of vortex flow is studied theoretically and numerically. Starting from a local analysis, where the perturbation in the vortex flow is Fourier decomposed in both radial and azimuthal directions, a modified Chebyshev polynomial method is used to discretize the linearized governing operator. The spectrum of the operator is divided into three… (More)
