Stability of asymmetric hydrodynamically developing channel flows

T. S. Chen, E. M. Sparrow

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Linear stability is studied for developing channel flows induced by asymmetric velocity profiles at the inlet. Neutral stability curves and axial variations of the critical Reynolds number are presented, showing greater stability for more skewed inlet profiles.
