By Tom Mullin, R. R. Kerswell

An exhilarating new course in hydrodynamic balance conception and the transition to turbulence is anxious with the function of disconnected states or finite amplitude ideas within the evolution of affliction in fluid flows. This quantity includes refereed papers offered on the IUTAM/LMS subsidized symposium on "Non-Uniqueness of strategies to the Navier-Stokes equations and their reference to Laminar-Turbulent Transition" held in Bristol 2004. Theoreticians and experimentalists collected to debate advancements in figuring out either the onset and cave in of disordered movement in shear flows equivalent to these present in pipes and channels. The vital goal of the symposium was once to debate the expanding quantity of experimental and numerical facts for finite amplitude suggestions to the Navier-Stokes equations and to set the paintings right into a glossy theoretical context. The individuals incorporated some of the prime specialists within the topic and this quantity captures a lot of the flavor of the ensuing stimulating and energetic discussions.

They introduced a perturbation to the flow and studied whether it was still turbulent when it reached the end of the pipe. They noticed that the border between the decaying and turbulent regime was not sharp but had a rather fragmented appearance. Dynamical Systems and the Transition to Turbulence 39 Figure 3. Lifetimes in pipe flow from experiments (Darbyshire and Mullin, 1995) (top) and numerical simulations (bottom). An experiment is labelled transition (cross) and decayed (full symbol) according to the state at the end of the pipe.

Nevertheless, the effective number of degrees of freedom, as measured, for instance, by the Lyapunov dimension, will be finite, and similar concepts should be applicable. Therefore, we will use similar tools and ideas in a study of pipe flow and plane Couette flow. , 1998b). The outline of this contribution is as follows. In Section 2 we will study the sensitive dependence of lifetimes on initial conditions. e. the distribution of lifetimes, in Section 3. In Section 4 we discuss the relevance of coherent states.
