The structure and origin of confined Holmboe waves
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2018-08-10)
Finite-amplitude manifestations of stratified shear flow instabilities and their spatio-temporal coherent structures are believed to play an important role in turbulent geophysical flows. Such shear flows commonly have ...
Horizontal locomotion of a vertically flapping oblate spheroid
(Cambridge University PressJournal of Fluid Mechanics, 2018-04-10)
We consider the self-induced motions of three-dimensional oblate spheroids of density $\rho_s$ with varying aspect ratios $AR=b/c \leq 1$, where $b$ and $c$ are the spheroids' centre-pole radius and centre-equator radius ...
