    • An analytical, phenomenological and numerical study of geophysical and magnetohydrodynamic turbulence in two dimensions 

      Blackbourn, Luke A. K. (University of St Andrews, 2013-11-29) - Thesis
      In this thesis I study a variety of two-dimensional turbulent systems using a mixed analytical, phenomenological and numerical approach. The systems under consideration are governed by the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes ...
    • Drag forces in liquid helium II 

      Martin, Colin N. B. (University of St Andrews, 1969) - Thesis
      Measurements of drag forces an spheres end a cylinder in open rectangular channels in liquid helium II heat flow and superflow wore mode at temperatures between 1.3°K and the λ-point. The drag forces were measured by the ...
    • Ice shelves as floating channel flows of viscous power-law fluids 

      Banik, I.; Dauparas, J. (2016-11-04) - Journal article
      We explain the force balance in flowing marine ice sheets and the ice shelves they often feed. Treating ice as a viscous shear-thinning power law fluid, we develop an asymptotic (late-time) theory in two cases: the presence ...
    • Rotational flow in fluid dynamics 

      Murray, J. D. (James Dickson) (University of St Andrews, 1955) - Thesis
      The thesis is divided into four chapters. Chapter I gives a brief résumé of the state of rotational flow theory up to 1955. Chapter II contains a study of the constant shear flow past cylinders with various cross sections. ...
    • Stability of some free-surface flows 

      Smith, Frank Ian Pitt (University of St Andrews, 1969) - Thesis
      The subject matter of this thesis is concerned with the stability of fluid flows; more particularly , with the stability of liquid films which have an interface with air. We will therefore begin by formulating the basic ...
