Direct numerical simulations have been used to examine the effect of the initial disturbance field on the development of three dimensionality and the transition to turbulence in the incompressible plane wake. Initial disturbances fields examined were combinations of two dimensional waves and symmetric pairs of 60 oblique waves at the fundamental, subharmonic, and subharmonic wavelengths. Results indicate that the presence of 60 disturbances at the subharmonic streamwise wavelength results in the development of strong coherent three dimensional structures. The resulting strong three dimensional rate of strain triggers the growth of intense fine scale motions. Wakes initiated with 60 deg disturbances at the fundamental streamwise wavelength develop weak coherent streamwise structures, and do not develop significant fine scale motions, even at high Reynolds numbers. The wakes which develop strong three-dimensional structures exhibit growth rates on par with experimentally observed turbulent plane wakes. Wakes which develop only weak three dimensional structures exhibit significantly lower late time growth rates.

A viciously cynical newspaper hack, Page toils at several small rags on Florida's gulf coast. His warped memory of literature, history, and quotes for every occasion-however inappropriate-allow him to write filler, win arguments, placate and enrage friends and enemies, and dissect his own blistering existence. With constant typing as both master and servant, he pecks endlessly at his collection of old typewriters, hilariously chronicling his sad past and humiliating present, his rage at God, and his hatred for the universe. Page left the wintry north after tragedy and divorce. Now he takes every ill-paying writing job he can scrounge, to save enough to flee the state and the foul regret that plagues his every waking moment. As he schemes and saves, he strips himself of all excess-his possessions and even unnecessary vocabulary-simplifying his life and preparing to escape the inescapable, himself. New love, new opportunities, and the dawning notion that a few people actually like him, conspire, forcing him to choose-eternally punish all things, including himself, or deal with his personal tragedies and return to the land of the living. Wake Me When I'm Over is the perfect blend of humor and personal misfortune.

From the beginning. Two young men in the Marine Corps have been sent to Wake Island to defend it. They are among another few who are there without hesitation. When the island falls to the Japanese, they are taken prisoner. Elsewhere a construction crew building on an island nearby has a supervisor who was take prisoner as well. They end up with a lot of other prisoners in a Korean port and board a slave train headed north to work crystal and salt mines on the Korean and Mongolian boarder. The train is hijacked by the prisoners and they escape to form a renegade bunch which turn the Japanese occupiers into twists and turns trying to re-capture them. There are American Marines, Australians, and several Chinese captors who are very inventive. They are there for over two years and finally taken out to return to duty. Lively action, personal heroism, and life and death struggles. This is not to reinvent World War II, but to tell a piece of history that might have actually happened. One can never tell, however, since many secrets hide in the deepest parts of the military archives.

Using a newly developed three dimensional, time dependent finite volume code designed to compute non-Newtonian flows over a large range of Reynolds number (Re), we performed simulations of viscoelastic flow past a circular cylinder. Our goal was to elucidate elastic effects during transition to turbulence in a bluff body wake. Based on its ability to capture essential physical processes in turbulent drag reduction studies, the FENE-P rheological model was employed in the calculation, and the numerical method utilized was such that a large range of rheological parameters (polymer length L, dimensionless Weissenberg number (Wi), and polymer concentration (beta) in the FENE-P model) could be probed. Simulations were performed for Reynolds numbers ranging from Re = 100 to Re = 3900. Within this range, the Newtonian cylinder wake first undergoes a series of secondary instabilities, transitioning the wake structure from a two-dimensional, laminar vortex shedding state to one exhibiting three-dimensional motion. This transition is characterized first by the mode A instability, which develops in the region of primary vortex development at a Reynolds number of Re = 190. The mode B instability then follows at Re = 260, resulting from unstable perturbation growth in the braid region between primary vortices. At still higher Reynolds numbers, Re = O(1000), the separated shear layer immediately behind the cylinder begins to transition prior to primary vortex shedding. Through nonlinear simulations as well as a Floquet linear stability analysis, viscoelasticity was observed to stabilize both regimes of three-dimensional transition. Full nonlinear simulations revealed that for high enough polymer extensibility L at Re = 300, where mode B instability structures dominate for Newtonian flow, the wake could be reverted back to a state resembling two-dimensional, laminar vortex shedding. This was then confirmed using a Floquet stability analysis, showing significantly suppressed growth rates for both the mode A and mode B instabilities in the linear regime of their development. Mechanisms of this stabilization are presented. At Re = 3900, viscoelasticity again stabilizes the flow, though at this point through a suppression of the Kelvin-Helmoltz rollup instability present in the separated shear layer for Newtonian flows. Once a primary Karman vortex is allowed to form without the influence of a transitioned shear layer, the wake then reverts back to one resembling the mode B instabilities. Confirming this, a study was then performed at the same Reynolds number but allowing for an inhomogeneous polymer concentration throughout the flow field. By injecting polymer additives on the upstream side of the cylinder, it was found that stabilization of the shear layer and of the subsequent wake could be achieved without the presence of polymeric stresses in all downstream locations of the flow.
