Flow of a stratified fluid in a wavy channel

  • A. Ramachandra Rao (a1) and Rathna Devanathan (a1)

The flow of a stratified fluid in a channel with small and large deformations is investigated. The analogy of this flow with swirling flow in tubes with non-uniform cross-sections is studied. The flow near the wall is blocked when the Froude number takes certain critical values. The possibility of preventing the stagnation zones in the flow field is also discussed.
