This paper deals with a linear stability analysis of the flow in a circular pipe with a sudden expansion. We consider both Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluid models and a thorough comparison is presented. The stability analysis is completed by an adjoint-based investigation on the sensitivity characteristics of perturbations. The results are discussed and compared, when it is possible, to those already published in the pertinent literature.

Abstract

This paper deals with a linear stability analysis of the flow in a circular pipe with a sudden expansion. We consider both Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluid models and a thorough comparison is presented. The stability analysis is completed by an adjoint-based investigation on the sensitivity characteristics of perturbations. The results are discussed and compared, when it is possible, to those already published in the pertinent literature.
