Abstract

Flows with curved streamlines play an important role in everyday life and industrial systems such as rotating machines and chemical reactors. They also represent a prototype of investigation of transition to chaos in hydrodynamic systems. Under certain circumstances, flows with curved streamlines lose their stability and longitudinal rolls are generated as a result of centrifugal instability. The simplest flow systems with curved streamlines are the Taylor-Couette flow between two coaxial independently rotating cylinders and the curved Poiseuille channel flow [1].
