A numerical procedure for predicting multiple solutions of a spherical taylor-couette flow

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

A numerical procedure for the prediction of multiple solutions of Taylor vortices in a spherical gap is presented. The steady incompressible Navier-Stokes equations in primitive variables are solved by a finite-difference method using a matrix preconditioning technique. Routes leading to multiple flow states arc designed heuristically by imposing symmetric properties. The current procedure gives very fast convergent rate to desired flow modes.
