IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

SECONDARY INSTABILITY OF TWO-DIMENSIONAL COHERENT STRUCTURES IN SHALLOW MIXING LAYERS
Author : LAM, MAN YUE , GHIDAOUI, MOHAMED S
The secondary instability of two-dimensional coherent structures (2DCS) in shallow mixing layers is investigated. To this end, secondary stability analysis is performed. The results are compared to nonlinear simulations of temporal shallow mixing layers performed with a shallow water model. The results show that there are two modes of instability for 2DCS in shallow mixing layers. By comparing stability analysis results with numerical simulations, it is suggested that the merging of 2DCS in shallow mixing layers can be explained by the secondary instability of the 2DCS. The two modes of instability in the secondary instability of 2DCS in shallow mixing layers correspond to the two merging mechanisms of 2DCS, namely the pairing and shredding of 2DCS.
