Title:An example of vanishing viscosity limit in the presence of moving Boundaries
Seminar:CCMA PDEs and Numerical Methods Seminar Series
Speaker:Anna Mazzucato, PSU
Abstract:
We consider viscous, Newtonian, incompressible fluid inside a rotating cylinder or cylindrical shell. We discuss the convergence of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations to the corresponding solutions of the Euler equations as viscosity vanishes for the case of planar, circularly symmetric flows, and the behavior in the boundary layer. Symmetry makes the problem linear and 2D, but we allow for rough angular velocities. We also discuss the case of plane parallel channel flow, where the problem is weakly non-linear.
