Temperature dependent viscosity flows - analysis and applications

Griffiths

Wednesday May 22, 2pm in the AGR room

Dr. Paul Griffiths (Coventry University, UK)

Title: Temperature dependent viscosity flows - analysis and applications

Abstract: In this talk we will consider two and three dimensional boundary layer flows. The stability of both the flat plate and rotating disk boundary layers will be discussed in the context of fluids that exhibit a variational viscosity. In particular, we will present linear stability results for fluids with viscosity that varies as a function of temperature. Numerical results (neutral curves, growth rates and energy analyses) will be supported by asymptotic predictions at large Reynolds numbers. The influence of an enforced axial flow will also be discussed in the context of Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD).
