  • Bifurcations with imperfect SO(2) symmetry and pinning of rotating waves 

    Marqués Truyol, Francisco; Meseguer Serrano, Álvaro; Lopez, Juan M.; Pacheco, Jose Rafael; López Alonso, José Manuel (2013-04-08)

    Rotating waves are periodic solutions in SO(2) equivariant dynamical systems. Their precession frequency changes with parameters and it may change sign, passing through zero. When this happens, the dynamical system is very ...
  • Dynamics of axially localized states in Taylor-Couette flows 

    López Alonso, José Manuel; Marqués Truyol, Francisco (2015-05-15)
    Open Access
    We present numerical simulations of the flow confined in a wide gap Taylor-Couette system, with a rotating inner cylinder and variable length-to-gap aspect ratio. A complex experimental bifurcation scenario differing from ...
  • Numerical modeling of simple laboratory experiments of rotating flows 

    López Alonso, José Manuel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-02-05)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Despite the large amount of research which has been conducted on turbulent flows, a full understanding of their dynamics as well as the mechanisms involved in the onset of turbulence is still missing. Experimental studies ...
