Abstract:
In this thesis the instability of two viscous incompressible flows is discussed by using numerical and analytical methods. The first problem concerns the steady streaming flow, that is contained within a hollow stationary cylinder and induced by the transverse oscillation of a solid inner cylinder. The small gap limit is taken so that a series solution in odd powers of the angular variable is possible. From the studies by Hall & Papageorgiou and Watson et al., it is known that the leading order equation has solutions that are steady, quasi-periodic and chaotic (period doubling). Since all the higher order equations are driven by the solution at leading order; the series solution for the steady streaming flow is investigated with an interest to determine any chaotic structures.
