Abstract

In this paper, we have found two new nonlinear travelling wave solutions in pipe flows. We investigate possible asymptotic structures at large Reynolds number $R$ when wavenumber is independent of $R$ and identify numerically calculated solutions as finite $R$ realizations of a nonlinear viscous core (NVC) state that collapses towards the pipe centre with increasing $R$ at a rate $R^{-1/4}$ . We also identify previous numerically calculated states as finite $R$ realizations of a vortex wave interacting (VWI) state with an asymptotic structure similar to the ones in channel flows studied earlier by Hall & Sherwin (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 661, 2010, pp. 178–205). In addition, asymptotics suggests the possibility of a VWI state that collapses towards the pipe centre like $R^{-1/6}$ , though this remains to be confirmed numerically.
