Written in English
Dean vortices in curved channels with 40 to 1 aspect ratios were measured and studied over the range of Dean numbers from 50 to 450. At low Dean numbers (50) the flow is fully laminar. At higher Dean numbers, the development of vortex pairs as the primary instability was a function of Dean number and the angle of curvature. Higher Dean numbers required less curvature to produce the vortices. At Dean numbers from 75 to 200, secondary instabilities developed in the form of vortex pair modulations, vortex pair twisting, and in the form of events where vortex pair undulations, vortex pair twisting, and in the form of events where vortex pairs appear and disappear. The secondary instabilities are also a function of Dean number and curvature. Twisting leads to increase in longitudinal fluctuating intensities, particularly in the upwash region from the concave wall, which are especially significant at Dean numbers above 150.
