Interfacial Instability in Highly Stratified Flowsby John P. Grubert, Univ of Nebraska-Lincoln, United States,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Hydraulic Engineering
Abstract: The stability of highly stratified shear flows is dependent on several parameters including the thickness of the interfacial transition layer. Experimental results show that the thickness of this layer is influenced by the ratio of interfacial to wall friction factors. In this paper experimental results on interfacial instability are examined and compared with several theoretical results.
