Effect of the Coriolis force and slowly varying flow on the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability
- 33 Downloads
The effect of the Coriolis force on the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability has been investigated, in which basic velocities of fluid are varying slowly with lateral coordinatey. The problem is solved by J.W.K.B. approximation method. Parabolic and other types of profiles for wide long channel flow have also been studied in detail.
