Abstract :

A study was conducted to study the stability of the boundary layer on a concave wall subject to uniform rotation around the axis of a curved plate. Aihara's integral method is used to predict the effect of rotation, and results show that for small rotation, the boundary flow is stabilized by the rotation. For big rotation, the rotation destabilizes the flow and induces the appearance of Taylor-Gortler vortices, which are instabilities in the boundary-layer flow.
