The boundary layer for a swirling flow of incompressible fluid in a convergent cone has been investigated. Theoretical calculation with boundary conditions more appropriate to physically existent situations discount the existence of "super velocities" within the boundary layer. Parallel experimental investigations demonstrate an interdependence of core and boundary layer flows which precludes the maintenance of initial "ideal flow" conditions.

Boundary conditions and stability of a perfectly matched layer for the elastic wave equation in first order form Duru, K.; Kozdon, JE; Kreiss, G. (2015);In computations, it is now common to surround artificial boundaries of a computational domain with a perfectly matched layer (PML) of finite thickness in order to prevent artificially reflected waves from contaminating a ...
