Spiral vortex breakdown as a global mode


The spiral form of vortex breakdown observed in the numerical simulations of Ruith et al. (J. Fluid Mech., vol. 486, 2003, p. 331) is interpreted as a nonlinear global mode originating at the convective/absolute instability transition point in the lee of the vortex breakdown bubble. The local absolute frequency at the transition station is shown to yield a satisfactory prediction of the precession frequency measured in the three-dimensional direct numerical simulations. © 2006 Cambridge University Press.
