A low-dimensional Galerkin method for the three-dimensional flow around a circular cylinder. (English) Zbl 0826.76071
Summary: A low-dimensional Galerkin method for the three-dimensional flow around a circular cylinder is constructed. The investigation of the wake solutions for a variety of basic modes, Hilbert spaces, and expansion modes reveals general mathematical and physical aspects which may strongly effect the success of low-dimensional simulations. Besides the cylinder wake, detailed information about the construction of similar low-dimensional Galerkin methods for the sphere wake, the boundary layer, the flow in a channel or pipe, the Taylor-Couette problem, and a variety of other flows is given.
