Stratified Sadovskii flow in a channel

  • S. Chernyshenko


Stably stratified and non-stratified flows past a touching pair of vortices with continuous velocity are considered. An asymptotic solution for the very long eddies is determined. Numerical results cover the whole range of subcritical stratification and eddy length.
