Their topics include solitary wave generation due to passage through the local resonance, asymptotic expansions of singular perturbation theory, the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability, and nonlinear Cauchy problems for elliptic equations.
However they quickly realized the cause was Kelvin-Helmholtz instability, where fluids moving at different speeds shear apart and form whirls.

There is no detailed information about the flame front and about the vortex shedding and development of the Kelvin-Helmholtz instability in the wake of the injector post available, which is important for turbulence and turbulent combustion modeling.
The second test case is characterized by a strong interplay of two processes: the formation of the [H.sub.2]O layer and the onset of the strong Kelvin-Helmholtz instability occurring due to the large density and velocity gradients in the [H.sub.2]O layer.
Where there is large shear force across an initial amplitude between two-component fluids, the interface is unstable, which is called Kelvin-Helmholtz instability. According to the results from Lee and Kim [17].
The Kelvin-Helmholtz instability occurs when there is a relative motion between the fluid layers of different physical parameters.

In one interpretation the knots derive from shock waves excited by the so-called Kelvin-Helmholtz instability - an undulating, wavelike disturbance that occurs where a supersonic fluid brushes past its slower-moving surroundings.
