STABILITY OF THREE-DIMENSIONAL BOUNDARY LAYER OF DILUTE POLYMER SOLUTIONS

The classical experimental and theoretical studies on the stability of three-dimensional boundary layers were made by N. Gregory, J.T. Stewart and W.S. Walker, using a disk rotating in a fluid at rest. In the analytical study of the stability of such a motion, the existence of three-dimensional periodic disturbances was assumed. This study describes similar experiments which demonstrate that the instabilities in a three-dimensional boundary layer appear to be effected by the addition of polymers.
