A classic experiment by Ludwig Prandtl (circa 1930) provided
convincing support for the circulation theory of lift generated by
airfoils. Accelerating an airfoil from rest in an intially stationary
fluid, circulation is generated in such a way that the net amount is
zero; this leaves a starting vortex in the fluid and a net circulation
of opposite sign bound to the airfoil. If the airfoil is then bought
to rest, the bound circulation is shed from the airfoil in the form of a
stopping vortex, leaving the overall circulation in the fluid zero, as
it was in the beginning. This animation (Wang &
Blackburn 2018) illustrates the process using a twodimensional
simulation of flow generated by a NACA0012 airfoil at 4^{o}
angle of attack and a peak translational Reynolds number of
10,000. Vorticity in the starting vortex is coloured red, while that
in the stopping vortex is coloured blue. Note the additional detail
of a smaller pair of vortices generated during the stopping process
near the leading edge on the airfoil's upper surface.
This animation of axial vorticity for azimuthal
Fourier modes 1, 5 and 6 helps to illustrate a triadic resonance
instability mechanism for flow in a precessing, rotating cylinder of
fluid (Albrecht, Blackburn, Lopez, Manasseh &
Meunier 2015). The animations are seen in the frame of reference
of the cylinder, in which the forcing directly driven by precessional
acceleration occurs in Fourier mode 1 and rotates with the precession
frequency. Theory dictates that the other two modes which directly
participate in the triad must differ by 1 in azimuth (65=1) and
counterrotate in the cylinder frame, exactly as seen here.
An illustration of the asymptotics underlying vortexwave
interaction that results in a finiteamplitude equilibrium
(a.k.a. selfsustaining) state in plane Couette flow
(Blackburn, Hall & Sherwin 2013). Part of the
significance here is that plane Couette flow is linearly stable
(i.e. stable to infinitesimal disturbances) at all Reynolds numbers;
in the linearly stable state, the streak flow is a linear function of
wallnormal distance (y) with no spanwise (z) variation.
However, the flow supports at nonlinear equilibrium a
combination of finiteamplitude disturbances that lead to a
firstorder change in the basic state, and these finiteamplitude
disturbances have a welldefined asymptotic dependence on Reynolds
number R. A twodimensional roll flow (a), smaller than
the basic state by a factor 1/R, is enough to drive the change
to a new twodimensional flow (b), with a spanwise variation
producing alternating high and lowspeed streaky disturbances near
each wall. The critical layer for a nontravelling wave on this
streaky flow is a contour of zero velocity, which is the green
isosurface in (b). The streaky flow supports standing
threedimensional wavy disturbances (c) which decay
with R^{7/6} at equilibrium and which, as can be seen,
cluster near the streak's critical layer. Taking the streamwise
(x) average of the wavy flow produces twodimensional Reynolds
stresses that are principally significant to the smallamplitude roll
flow; their divergence produces a stress jump (d) that drives
the roll flow, and hence preserves the whole disturbance system at a
finite amplitude. The resulting solution to the Navier–Stokes
equations is also called an 'exact coherent structure'. We showed
that as spanwise wave lengthscales reduce, these structures become
smaller, localising near the centre of the flow, and hence become
relevant to arbitrary shear flows since the direct influence of the
walls is lost. See slides about the `hybrid' computational method
employed, below.
An animation of the perioddoubling breakdown of pulsatile flow
in an axisymmetric constricted tube (Sherwin &
Blackburn 2005, Blackburn & Sherwin 2007).
This is an idealised representation of blood flow in a stenotic artery
with 75% occlusion, Reynolds number 400, Womersley number 15.85. The
vortex rings that are blown out of the constriction with each pulse
tilt slightly forward, then backward, on successive periods. Under
selfinduction and wall interaction of the vorticity in the ring, this
tilting proceeds rapidly to an energetic breakdown.
Animation of bypass transition in pulsatile stenotic pipe flow in
which the pulse waveform represents typical flow in the human common
carotid artery (Mao, Sherwin & Blackburn 2010).
Linear transient energy growth is extremely large, of order
1×10^{25} within half a pulse period for suitable intial
disturbances at Reynolds number Re=300. For even a tiny
seeding with the optimal initial disturbance, a puff of turbulence is
generated downstream of the stenosis. This washes slowly downstream
and decays during subsequent pulse cycles. Mean flow is from left to
right and the stenosis is to the left of the field of view.
Animation of transient twodimensional convective instability in flow
over a backwardfacing step at Re=500
(Blackburn, Barkley & Sherwin
2008, Barkley, Blackburn & Sherwin 2008),
visualised as contours of perturbation vorticity. The optimal
disturbance initial condition is a wave packet that is very tightly
clustered around the step edge, and grows into an array of
counterrotating rollers that fill the downstream channel, at a
location past both (upper and lower) separation zones, before
eventually decaying. The maximum twodimensional energy growth at this
Reynolds number is 63.1×10^{3}.
The flow generated by a circular cylinder
moving from side to side in quiescent fluid has a number of different
instability modes, depending on the amplitude and period of the
motion. This image of massless particles advected by a quasiperiodic
instability mode shows how small puffs form up into largescale
vortices that move away from the cylinder along the axis of
oscillation (Elston, Blackburn & Sheridan,
2006).
Mode A, Re=195 
Mode B, Re=265 
Mode TW, Re=400 



Karmanstreet wakes of twodimensional bodies generically have three
kinds of threedimensional instability modes; two distinct synchronous
modes which at onset have the same frequency as the underlying wake,
and two related quasiperiodic modes (standing and travelling waves),
one of which may be stable. Here we see in top view the two
synchronous modes of the circular cylinder wake (modes A and B), and
the travelling wave mode, which is the third to bifurcate from the
twodimensional basic state as Reynolds numbers are increased (Blackburn, Marques & Lopez, 2005).
t=t_{0} 
t=t_{0}+T/2 


Isosurfaces of vorticity indicating a synchronous threedimensional
instability mode of a flow in a periodically driven twodimensional
rectangular cavity (Blackburn & Lopez 2003).
The cavity crosssection has a height:width ratio of 2:1, and the
lower floor has an imposed sinusoidal oscillation of temporal period
T. The symmetry group of the base flow is identical to that of
many timeperiodic wakes, and the threedimensional instability modes
consequently have the same symmetry properties as e.g. those of the
circular cylinder wake. There are two control parameters, a Reynolds
number and a Stokes number. Here, at
St=20 and
Re=535, the first mode to become unstable is a shortwavelength
one, with some similarity to the cylinder wake's mode B. Translucent
isosurfaces are of wallparallel vorticity, while the solid red/yellow
surfaces are of the vertical vorticity component. At other parameter
values, this flow also has a longwavelength synchronous mode and a
quasiperiodic modulated travelling wave mode.
Periodic axisymmetric state, Re=3000 
Rotating wave with 6fold symmetry, Re=4000 


Instabilities of the flow produced by steady rotation of the lower lid
of a cylindrical cavity with height/radius ratio
H/R=2.5. At low Reynolds numbers the flow is axisymetric,
steady, and has an axial vortex breakdown. The flow first becomes
unstable to a periodic axisymmetric instability through a Hopf
bifurcation at Re=2707, but at higher Reynolds numbers rotating
waves also become unstable, and are modulated by the axisymmetric
pulsation. Blackburn & Lopez (2000), Blackburn (2002), Blackburn &
Lopez (2002).
Colour contours of spanwise and
phaseaveraged spanwise component of vorticity from a
threedimensional simulation of flow past a circular cylinder in
vortexinduced vibration, at Re=720, V_{r}=6.5
(Blackburn, Govardhan & Williamson 2001). The
four frames illustrate averages for phasepoints equispaced over the
average vortexshedding period. Note the clear indication of 2Pmode
shedding, the first time this had been documented as a phaseaveraged
result in a DNS study. The average oscillation amplitude was
approximately 0.45D.

The pattern produced by tracking massless
particles in twodimensional flow past a swimming cylinder (Blackburn, Elston & Sheridan 1999). The cylinder has
forced oscillations both in the vertical direction and in rotation
about its axis. The timeaverage effect is to create a low pressure
region to the left of the cylinder; if the cylinder is free to move
horizontally, it 'swims' to the left, leaving behind it a sequence of
pufflike structures, seen here.

As one stage in the 'dynamic' procedure for largeeddy simulation,
velocity fields need explicit smoothing, or spatial lowpass
filtering, to remove finescale fluctuations. These panels show
contours of streamwise velocity component on a slice through a
spectral element simulation of a turbulent channel flow, both before
filtering, and after a filter was applied in the Legendre polynomial
space projection of the data in each element (Blackburn & Schmidt 2003).
A perspective sideview of nearwall structures in a turbulent
boundary layer, visualised with an instantaneous isosurface of a
positive value of the discriminant of the velocity gradient tensor (Blackburn, Mansour & Cantwell 1996). When the
discriminant is positive, the velocity gradient tensor has a pair of
complexconjugate eigenvalues and a single real eigenvalue, so the
local fluid motion has a spiralling character. The isosurfaces mark a
a large number of distinct structures that are nearly parallel to the
wall in the buffer layer, which, further from the wall, tilt to have
an orientation closer to 45^{o} downstream, i.e. aligned with
the direction of timeaverage maximum strain rate. The timemean flow
direction is indicated by the arrow.
