Nonlinear aspects of high Reynolds number channel flows

Abstract : This paper considers the flow in a two-dimensional channel at high Reynolds number, with wall deformations which can lead to flow separation. An asymptotic model is proposed by using the successive complementary expansion method with generalized asymptotic expansions. In particular, the model emphasizes the asymmetry of the channel geometry by introducing a change of variables. It is shown that the model is more general than the models developed with the method of matched asymptotic expansions. Comparisons with Navier-Stokes solutions show that the model is well founded and enables us to treat original problems.
