    • Dynamic States in Cellular Flames 

      Gorman, Michael (2009-10-08)
      Dynamic States in Cellular Flames, Michael Gorman, University of Houston. A premixed flame on a circular porous plug burner appears a thin (0.5 mm) luminous disk. Premixed flames are distinctive as a dynamical system ...
    • Ratcheting States of Cellular Flames 

      Gorman, Michael (2009-10-15)
      A premixed flame on a circular porous plug burner appears a thin (0.5 mm) luminous disk. Premixed flames are distinctive as a dynamical system in that both the spatial and temporal characteristics of the can be measured ...
    • A Retrospective on Modulated Wavy Vortex Flow 

      Gorman, Michael; Swinney, Harry (2009-10-15)
      Circular Couette flow with the outer cylinder fixed undergoes three bifurcations before the onset of turbulence. The initial steady, azimuthal flow undergoes a bifurcation to Taylor vortex flow in which N vortices form ...
