Landau-Hopf scenario of passage to turbulence in some problems of elastic stability theory

  • A. N. Kulikov
Integral Equations


We consider a boundary value problem for a nonlinear integro-differential equation modeling the vibrations of a pipe transporting a fluid and the vibrations of a thin cylinder in an axisymmetric flow. For the boundary conditions we take the hinge support conditions. We show that the Landau-Hopf scenario of passage to turbulence can be realized in such a problem, whereby stable invariant tori of increasing dimensions are generated as the main bifurcation parameter increases.
