- Initial value problem: flow stability
- Forced problem: input-output analysis

- Asymptotic stability analysis:

- Transient growth analysis:
Optimal disturbances in Blasius flow

- Matrix A very large for complex spatially developing flows
- Consider eigenvalues of the matrix exponential, related to eigenvalues of A
- Use Navier-Stokes solver (DNS) to approximate the action of matrix exponential or evolution operator

- Krylov subspace created using NS-timestepper
- Orthogonal basis created with Gram-Schmidt
- Approximate eigenvalues from Hessenberg matrix H

- Least stable eigenmodes equivalent using time-stepper and matrix solver
- Least stable branch is a global representation of Tollmien-Schlichting (TS) modes

- Streamwise velocity of least damped TS-mode
- Envelope of global TS-mode identical to local spatial growth
- Shape functions of local and global modes identical

- Optimal growth from eigenvalues of
- Krylov sequence built by forward-adjoint iterations

- Full adjoint iterations (black) sum of TS-branch modes only (magenta)
- Transient since disturbance propagates out of domain

- Initial disturbance leans against the shear raised up by Orr-mechanism into propagating TS-wavepacket

- Input-output for 2D Blasius configuration
- Model reduction

- Entire dynamics vs. input-output time signals

- Past inputs to initial state: class of initial conditions possible to generate through chosen forcing

- Initial state to future outputs: possible outputs from initial condition

- Past inputs to future outputs:

- Eigenmodes of Hankel operator – balanced modes

- Controllability Gramian

- Observability Gramian

- Input

- Correlation of actuator impulse response in forward solution
- POD modes:
- Ranks states most easily influenced by input
- Provides a means to measure controllability

- Correlation of sensor impulse response in adjoint solution
- Adjoint POD modes:
- Ranks states most easily sensed by output
- Provides a means to measure observability

- Output

- Combine snapshots of direct and adjoint simulation
- Expand modes in snapshots to obtain smaller eigenvalue problem

Direct simulation:

Adjoint simulation:

Objective

- Complex stability/control problems solved using Krylov/Arnoldi methods based on snapshots of forward and adjoint Navier-Stokes solutions
- Optimal disturbance evolution brought out Orr-mechanism and propagating TS-wave packet automatically
- Balanced modes give low order models preserving input-output relationship between sensors and actuators
- Feedback control of Blasius flow
- Reduced order models with balanced modes used in LQG control
- Controller based on small number of modes works well in DNS

- Outlook: incorporate realistic sensors and actuators in 3D problem and test controllers experimentally

Perturbation energy

Global mode energy

- Global temporal growth rate damped and depends on length of domain and boundary conditions
- Single global mode captures local spatial instability
- Sum of damped global modes represents convectively unstable disturbances
- TS-wave packet grows due to local exponential growth, but globally represents a transient disturbance since it propagates out of the domain

- Streamwise vorticies create streaks for long times
- Optimals for short times utilizes Orr-mechanism

- Inputs:
- Disturbances: roughness, free-stream turbulence, acoustic waves
- Actuation: blowing/suction, wall motion, forcing

- Outputs:
- Measurements of pressure, skin friction etc.

- Aim: preserve dynamics of input-output relationship in reduced order model used for control design

- Basic flow from DNS with SFD:
- Åkervik et al., Phys. Fluids 18, 2006
- Strong shear layer at cavity top and recirculation at the downstream end of the cavity

- Global eigenmodes found using Arnoldi method
- About 150 eigenvalues converged and 2 unstable

- Forward and adjoint mode located in different regions
- implies non-orthogonal eigenfunctions/non-normal operator
- Flow is sensitive where adjoint is large

- Eigenfunction expansion in selected modes
- Optimization of energy output

- x-t diagrams of pressure at y=10 using eigenmode expansion
- Wavepacket generates pressure pulse when reaching downstream lip
- Pressure pulse triggers another wavepacket at upstream lip
