Abstract

A noninvasive cinematographic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique has been developed for the Taylor-Couette problem with a superposed axial Poiseuille flow. This paper discusses a study that focuses on steady and unsteady hydrodynamic modes that emerge as the rotational speed of the inner cylinder and pressure-driven axial flow rate are varied. Such a study is crucial in the optimization of equipment designed for the separation or mixing of liquid-gas and liquid-solid mixtures.
