  1. 1. Analysis and control of transitional shear flows using global modes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Shervin Bagheri; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fluid mechanics; flow control; hydrodynamic stability; global modes; jet in crossflow; flat-plate boundary layer; laminar-turbulent transition; Arnoldi method; Koopman modes; balanced truncation; direct numerical simulations.; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Fluid mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : In this thesis direct numerical simulations are used to investigate two phenomenain shear flows: laminar-turbulent transition over a flat plate and periodicvortex shedding induced by a jet in cross flow. The emphasis is on understanding and controlling the flow dynamics using tools from dynamical systems and control theory. READ MORE

  2. 2. Stability analysis and control design of spatially developing flows

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Shervin Bagheri; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Global modes; transient growth; model reduction; feedback control; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Fluid mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : Methods in hydrodynamic stability, systems and control theory are applied to spatially developing flows, where the flow is not required to vary slowly in the streamwise direction. A substantial part of the thesis presents a theoretical framework for the stability analysis, input-output behavior, model reduction and control design for fluid dynamical systems using examples on the linear complex Ginzburg-Landau equation.
