On Stability and Transition in Bent Pipes
This work is concerned with the investigation of the instability and transition to turbulence of the viscous, incompressible flow inside curved pipes. For the first time, the impact of the curvature is analysed over the whole parameter space, presenting new results for both the steady flow and the instabilities encountered by this flow.
