Transition in pipe flow: the saddle structure on the boundary of turbulence
2008 (English)In: Journal of Fluid Mechanics, ISSN 0022-1120, E-ISSN 1469-7645, Vol. 613, 255-274 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The laminar-turbulent boundary Sigma is the set separating initial conditions which relaminarize uneventfully from those which become turbulent. Phase space trajectories on this hypersurface in cylindrical pipe flow appear to be chaotic and show recurring evidence of coherent structures. A general numerical technique is developed for recognizing approaches to these structures and then for identifying the exact coherent solutions themselves. Numerical evidence is presented which suggests that trajectories on Sigma are organized around only a few travelling waves and their heteroclinic connections. If the flow is suitably constrained to a subspace with a discrete rotational symmetry, it is possible to find locally attracting travelling waves embedded within Sigma. Four new types of travelling waves were found using this approach.
