The laminar flow in two-dimensional diffusers may produce either symmetric or non-symmetric steady solutions, depending on the value of the Reynolds number as compared with some critical value. Transition to the asymmetric solution at Re=100 and re-symmetrization after the introduction of the control cylinder The stability properties of the flow have been studied in the context […]
