Are there any good papers/resources covering an introduction Taylor Couette Flow suitable for a physics undergraduate?

    $\begingroup$ Twenty years ago, there definitely was not a treatment of the type you are looking for. Some information is can be found at seas.harvard.edu/brenner/taylor —although the site has degraded somewhat since it was created as a class project back in 2000. (The writeup I contributed is missing its images, I notice for example.) $\endgroup$ – Buzz Jul 17 at 22:24

One of the standard works on hydrodynamic stability is the book by Drazin. Taylor-Couette flow is discussed in chapter 3 titled "Centrifugal Instability". Prerequisites to read this chapter are:

  • knowledge of Navier-Stokes equations
  • familiarity with cylindrical coordinates
  • some experience with linear stability analysis
