Title: Optimal Control for Two-Dimensional Stochastic Navier-Stokes Equations

Abstract

Loeb space methods are used to prove the existence of an optimal control for the two-dimensional stochastic Navier--Stokes equations in a variety of settings-including that of control based on digital observations of the evolution of the solution.

  • Two truncations of the Navier--Stokes equations for an incompressible fluid on a two-dimensional torus are numerically investigated. The two models, an eight-mode truncation and a nine-mode extension of it, exhibit almost completely different behaviors. Only two aspects appear to be common to both. First, in contrast to all the previously studied models, turbulence takes place at low Reynolds numbers and for critical values close to each other. Second, there is a parameter interval for which the same stable periodic orbit is present in both models. The main feature of the two truncations is a very rich phenomenology, with many differentmore » bifurcations of closed orbits. Turbulence is reached through a sequence of period-doubling bifurcations in the eight-mode model, and via a tangent bifurcation in the nine-mode one. Sequences of infinite bifurcations, the presence in a very narrow range of a stable closed orbit with a quite long period, a homoclinic bifurcation, and the coexistence of strange attractors with attracting periodic orbits, appear to be the more interesting phenomena.« less
  • The main purpose of this paper is to develop a finite analytic (FA) numerical solution for unsteady two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations. The FA method utilizes the analytic solution in a small local element to formulate the algebraic representation of partial differential equations. In this study the combination of linear and exponential functions that satisfy the governing equation is adopted as the boundary function, thereby improving the accuracy of the finite analytic solution. Two flows, one a starting cavity flow and the other a vortex shedding flow behind a rectangular block, are solved by the FA method. The starting square cavity flowmore » is solved for Reynolds numbers of 400, 1000, and 2000 to show the accuracy and stability of the FA solution. The FA solution for flow over a rectangular block (H x H/4) predicts the Strouhal number for Reynolds numbers of 100 and 500 to be 0.156 and 0.125. Details of the flow patterns are given. In addition to streamlines and vorticity distribution, rest-streamlines are given to illustrate the vortex motion downstream of the block.« less
  • We consider the initial boundary value problem for the Navier-Stokes equations with boundary conditions {rvec {nu}}{vert_bar}{partial_derivative}{omega} = {rvec a}. We assume that {rvec a} may have jump discontinuities at finitely many points {epsilon}1,{hor_ellipsis},{epsilon}m of the boundary {partial_derivative}{omega} of a boundary domain {omega} {contained_in} {Re}{sup 2}. We prove that this problem has a unique generalized solution in a finite time interval or for small initial and boundary data. The solution is found in a class of vector fields with infinite energy integral. The case of a moving boundary is also considered.
  • A compressible, two-dimensional, unstructured-grid Navier-Stokes solver has been developed for subsonic viscous flows. Pseudo-time preconditioning is applied to improve low Mach number convergence for primitive as well as conserved variables. The scheme was implemented on a workstation and on the Ncube2s, which utilizes the multiple-instruction, multiple-data (MIMD) approach to parallel computing. A detailed description of the implementation procedure for an unstructured-grid flow solver on a MIMD computer is given. Test cases include steady as well as unsteady flows.
  • An efficient and accurate algorithm for solving the two-dimensional (2D) incompressible Navier-Stokes equations on a disk with no-slip boundary conditions is described. The vorticity-stream function formulation of these equations is used, and spatially the vorticity and stream functions are expressed as Fourier-Chebyshev expansions. The Poisson and Helmholtz equations which arise from the implicit-explicit time marching scheme are solved as banded systems using a postconditioned spectral {tau}-method. The polar coordinate singularity is handled by expanding fields radically over the entire diameter using a parity modified Chebyshev series and building partial regularity into the vorticity. The no-slip boundary condition is enforced bymore » transferring one of the two boundary conditions imposed on the stream function onto the vorticity via a solvability constraint. Significant grains in run times were realized by parallelizing the code in message passage interface (MPI).« less
