Abstract

The physics of density-wave instabilities is now rather well understood. Density-wave oscillations are caused by the lag introduced into a thermal-hydraulic system by the finite speed of propagation of density perturbations. In principle, density-wave oscillations can occur in both diabatic and adiabatic two-phase systems, and in diabatic single-phase systems.
