The stratorotational instability of Taylor-Couette flows of moderate Reynolds numbers

23 Dec 2017 Rüdiger G. Seelig T. Schultz M. Gellert M. Harlander U. Egbers Chr.

In view of new experimental data the instability against adiabatic nonaxisymmetric perturbations of a Taylor-Couette flow with an axial density stratification is considered in dependence of the Reynolds number Re of rotation and the Brunt-V\"ais\"al\"a number Rn of the stratification. The flows at and beyond the Rayleigh limit become unstable between a lower and an upper Reynolds number (for fixed Rn)... (read more)
