Control for Fast and Stable Laminar-to-High-Reynolds-Numbers Transfer in a 2D Navier-Stokes Channel Flow

Abstract : We consider the problem of generating and tracking a trajectory between two arbitrary parabolic profiles of a periodic 2D channel flow, which is linearly unstable for high Reynolds numbers. Also known as the Poiseuille flow, this problem is frequently cited as a paradigm for transition to turbulence. Our procedure consists in generating an exact trajectory of the nonlinear system that approaches exponentially the objective profile. Using a backstepping method, we then design boundary control laws guaranteeing that the error between the state and the trajectory decays exponentially in $L^2$, $H^1$, and $H^2$ norms. The result is first proved for the linearized Stokes equations, then shown to hold locally for the nonlinear Navier-Stokes system.
