1. V. L. Okulov, Yasuhide Fukumoto, Analytical solution for self-induced motion of a helical vortex with a Gaussian core, Thermophysics and Aeromechanics, 10.1134/S0869864320040022, 27, 4, 481-488, 2020.12, The paper presents an analytical solution for helical vortices with a Gaussian vorticity distribution in the core, which is confirmed by experimental and numerical simulations. This result is obtained by extending the Dyson method to the Biot–Savart law. Previously, analytical solutions were found and studied only for vortices with constant vorticity distribution in the core (a Rankine-type vortex core). One of the important issues raised during the discussion is the difference between self-induced movements of helical structures with both types of vortex core. The proposed solutions are important for the fundamental understanding and description of the behavior of helical eddy flows in various fields of industry and in nature. Examples include tip vortices behind the rotors of wind or hydro turbines, tornadoes, or axial vortices in aerodynamic devices such as vortex apparatuses and generators; cyclone separators, combustion chambers, etc..

4. Liu Fengnan, Yasuhide Fukumoto, Xiaopeng Zhao, A Linearized Finite Difference Scheme for the Richards Equation Under Variable-Flux Boundary Conditions, Journal of Scientific Computing, 10.1007/s10915-020-01196-y, 83, 1, 2020.04, The Richards equation is a degenerate nonlinear PDE that models a flow through saturated/unsaturated porous media. Research on its numerical methods has been conducted in many fields. Implicit schemes based on a backward Euler format are widely used in calculating it. However, it is difficult to obtain stability with a numerical scheme because of the strong nonlinearity and degeneracy. In this paper, we establish a linearized semi-implicit finite difference scheme that is faster than backward Euler implicit schemes. We analyze the stability of this scheme by adding a small positive perturbation ϵ to the coefficient function of the Richards equation. Moreover, we show that there is a linear relationship between the discretization error in the L-norm and ϵ. Numerical experiments are carried out to verify our main results..

Fengnan Liu, Yasuhide Fukumoto, Xiaopeng Zhao, Stability analysis of the explicit difference scheme for richards equation, Entropy, 10.3390/e22030352, 22, 3, 2020.03, A stable explicit difference scheme, which is based on forward Euler format, is proposed for the Richards equation. To avoid the degeneracy of the Richards equation, we add a perturbation to the functional coefficient of the parabolic term. In addition, we introduce an extra term in the difference scheme which is used to relax the time step restriction for improving the stability condition. With the augmented terms, we prove the stability using the induction method. Numerical experiments show the validity and the accuracy of the scheme, along with its efficiency..
6. R. Zou, J. Labarbe, O. N. Kirillov, Y. Fukumoto, Analysis of azimuthal magnetorotational instability of rotating magnetohydrodynamic flows and Tayler instability via an extended Hain-Lüst equation, Physical Review E, 10.1103/PhysRevE.101.013201, 101, 1, 2020.01, We consider a differentially rotating flow of an incompressible electrically conducting and viscous fluid subject to an external axial magnetic field and to an azimuthal magnetic field that is allowed to be generated by a combination of an axial electric current external to the fluid and electrical currents in the fluid itself. In this setting we derive an extended version of the celebrated Hain-Lüst differential equation for the radial Lagrangian displacement that incorporates the effects of the axial and azimuthal magnetic fields, differential rotation, viscosity, and electrical resistivity. We apply the Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin method to the extended Hain-Lüst equation and derive a comprehensive dispersion relation for the local stability analysis of the flow to three-dimensional disturbances. We confirm that in the limit of low magnetic Prandtl numbers, in which the ratio of the viscosity to the magnetic diffusivity is vanishing, the rotating flows with radial distributions of the angular velocity beyond the Liu limit, become unstable subject to a wide variety of the azimuthal magnetic fields, and so is the Keplerian flow. In the analysis of the dispersion relation we find evidence of a new long-wavelength instability which is caught also by the numerical solution of the boundary value problem for a magnetized Taylor-Couette flow..

Moreover, based on a parabolic interpolation inequality, bootstrap argument and some weighted estimates, we also address the space-time decay properties of strong solutions in R3.
9. Liangbing Jin, Lê Thị Thái, Yasuhide Fukumoto, Frictional effect on stability of discontinuity interface in tangential velocity of a shallow-water flow, Physics Letters, Section A: General, Atomic and Solid State Physics, 10.1016/j.physleta.2019.125839, 383, 26, 2019.09, We examine a frictional effect on the linear stability of an interface of discontinuity in tangential velocity. The fluid is moving with uniform velocity U in a region but is at rest in the other, and the bottom surface is assumed to exert drag force, quadratic in velocity, on the thin fluid layer. In the absence of the drag, the instability of the Kelvin-Helmholtz type is suppressed for U>8c, with c being the propagating speed of the gravity wave. We find by asymptotic analyses for both small and large values of the drag strength that the drag, regardless of its strength, makes the flow unstable for the whole range of the Froude number U/c..
10. Yasuhide Fukumoto, Xiaopeng Zhao, Well-posedness and large time behavior of solutions for the electron inertial Hall-MHD system, Advances in Differential Equations, 24, 1-2, 31-68, 2019.01, In this paper, the properties of weak and strong solutions for the Hall-magnetohydrodynamic system augmented by the effect of elec- tron inertia are studied. First, we establish the existence and uniqueness of local-in-time strong solutions; Then, we prove the existence of global strong solutions under the condition that ∥u 0H˙ 1/2 +∥B 0H˙ 1/2 +∥∇B 0H˙ 1/2 is sufficiently small. Moreover, by applying a cut-off function and gen- eralized energy inequality, we show that the weak solution of electron inertia Hall-MHD system approaches zero as the time t → ∞. Finally, the algebraic decay rate of the weak solution of electron inertia Hall- MHD system is established by using Fourier splitting method and the properties of decay character..
11. D. V. Ilyin, Y. Fukumoto, W. A. Goddard, S. I. Abarzhi, Analysis of dynamics, stability, and flow fields' structure of an accelerated hydrodynamic discontinuity with interfacial mass flux by a general matrix method, Physics of Plasmas, 10.1063/1.5008648, 25, 11, 2018.11, We develop a general matrix method to analyze from a far field the dynamics of an accelerated interface between incompressible ideal fluids of different densities with interfacial mass flux and with negligible density variations and stratification. We rigorously solve the linearized boundary value problem for the dynamics conserving mass, momentum, and energy in the bulk and at the interface. We find a new hydrodynamic instability that develops only when the acceleration magnitude exceeds a threshold. This critical threshold value depends on the magnitudes of the steady velocities of the fluids, the ratio of their densities, and the wavelength of the initial perturbation. The flow has potential velocity fields in the fluid bulk and is shear-free at the interface. The interface stability is set by the interplay of inertia and gravity. For weak acceleration, inertial effects dominate, and the flow fields experience stable oscillations. For strong acceleration, gravity effects dominate, and the dynamics is unstable. For strong accelerations, this new hydrodynamic instability grows faster than accelerated Landau-Darrieus and Rayleigh-Taylor instabilities. For given values of the fluids' densities and their steady bulk velocities, and for a given magnitude of acceleration, we find the critical and maximum values of the initial perturbation wavelength at which this new instability can be stabilized and at which its growth is the fastest. The quantitative, qualitative, and formal properties of the accelerated conservative dynamics depart from those of accelerated Landau-Darrieus and Rayleigh-Taylor dynamics. New diagnostic benchmarks are identified for experiments and simulations of unstable interfaces..
12. Ummu Habibah, Hironori Nakagawa, Yasuhide Fukumoto, Finite-thickness effect on speed of a counter-rotating vortex pair at high Reynolds numbers, Fluid Dynamics Research, 10.1088/1873-7005/aaa5c8, 50, 3, 2018.03, We establish a general formula for the translational speed of a counter-rotating vortex pair, valid for thick cores, moving in an incompressible fluid with and without viscosity. We extend to higher order the method of matched asymptotic expansions developed by Ting and Tung (1965 Phys. Fluids 8 1039-51). The solution of the Euler or the Navier-Stokes equations is constructed in the form of a power series in a small parameter, the ratio of the core radius to the distance between the core centers. For a viscous vortex pair, the small parameter should be where ν is the kinematic viscosity of the fluid and Γ is the circulation of each vortex. A correction due to the effect of finite thickness of the vortices to the traveling speed makes its appearance at fifth order. A drastic simplification is achieved of expressing it solely in terms of the strength of the second-order quadrupole field associated with the elliptical deformation of the core. For a viscous vortex pair, we exploit the conservation law for the hydrodynamic impulse to derive the growth of the distance between the vortices, which is cubic in time..
13. Fermín Franco Medrano, Yasuhide Fukumoto, Clara Marika Velte, Azur Hodžić, Mass entrainment rate of an ideal momentum turbulent round jet, journal of the physical society of japan, 10.7566/JPSJ.86.034401, 86, 3, 2017.01, We propose a two-phase-fluid model for a full-cone turbulent round jet that describes its dynamics in a simple but comprehensive manner with only the apex angle of the cone being a disposable parameter. The basic assumptions are that (i) the jet is statistically stationary and that (ii) it can be approximated by a mixture of two fluids with their phases in dynamic equilibrium. To derive the model, we impose conservation of the initial volume and total momentum fluxes. Our model equations admit analytical solutions for the composite density and velocity of the two-phase fluid, both as functions of the distance from the nozzle, from which the dynamic pressure and the mass entrainment rate are calculated. Assuming a far-field approximation, we theoretically derive a constant entrainment rate coefficient solely in terms of the cone angle. Moreover, we carry out experiments for a single-phase turbulent air jet and show that the predictions of our model compare well with this and other experimental data of atomizing liquid jets..
14. Hemanta Hazarika, Yasuhide Fukumoto, Sustainable solution for seawall protection against tsunami-induced damage, International Journal of Geomechanics, 10.1061/(ASCE)GM.1943-5622.0000687, 16, 5, 2016.10, To protect coastal structures from the damage caused by the impact force of a tsunami, a new concept of using waste tires behind such structures is introduced in this paper. A physical model for tsunami impact force simulation was developed to evaluate the reduction effect of tsunami impact force by the tire structures. Model tests also were performed to evaluate the stiffness of tire structures. From an esthetic point of view, cultivation of suitable plants inside the tires is also proposed. Field tests on planting trees that can grow in saline soil conditions were performed to see whether such a structure can preserve the greenery of the area. Results show that the tsunami impact force could be reduced considerably by placing filled tires (with a suitable material) behind seawalls, and this technique can protect the structures from the tsunami impact force and the resulting scouring. The greening effect could be maintained by the appropriate selection of the shrubs and trees planted inside the tires, making it one of the most cost-effective methods for recycling waste tires..
15. Michael I. Tribelsky, Yasuhide Fukumoto, Laser heating of dielectric particles for medical and biological applications, Biomedical Optics Express, 10.1364/BOE.7.002781, 7, 7, 2781-2788, 2016.07, We consider the general problem of laser pulse heating of a spherical dielectric particle embedded in a liquid. The discussed range of the problem parameters is typical for medical and biological applications. We focus on the case, when the heat diffusivity in the particle is of the same order of magnitude as that in the fluid. We perform quantitative analysis of the heat transfer equation based on interplay of four characteristic scales of the problem, namely the particle radius, the characteristic depth of light absorption in the material of the particle and the two heat diffusion lengths: in the particle and in the embedding liquid. A new quantitative characteristic of the laser action, that is the cooling time, describing the temporal scale of the cooling down of the particle after the laser pulse is over, is introduced and discussed. Simple analytical formulas for the temperature rise in the center of the particle and at its surface as well as for the cooling time are obtained. We show that at the appropriate choice of the problem parameters the cooling time may be by many orders of magnitude larger the laser pulse duration. It makes possible to minimize the undesirable damage of healthy tissues owing to the finite size of the laser beam and scattering of the laser radiation, simultaneously keeping the total hyperthermia period large enough to kill the pathogenic cells. An example of application of the developed approach to optimization of the therapeutic effect at the laser heating of particles for cancer therapy is presented..
16. Yasuhide Fukumoto, Valery L. Okulov, David H. Wood, The Contribution of Kawada to the Analytical Solution for the Velocity Induced by a Helical Vortex Filament, Applied Mechanics Reviews, 10.1115/1.4031964, 67, 6, 2015.11, The basic solution for the velocity induced by helical vortex filament is well known as Hardin's solution, published in 1982. A study of early publications on helical vortices now shows that the Japanese scientist Kawada from Tokyo Imperial University also produced many of these results in 1936, which predates Hardin by 46 years. Consequently, in order to honor both, we have studied their derivations to establish the originality of both solutions..

20. Hirofumi Sakuma, Yasuhide Fukumoto, On formal stability of stratified shear flows, Publications of the Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences, 10.4171/PRIMS/166, 51, 4, 605-633, 2015.01, A novel linear stability criterion is established for the equilibria of general three-dimen- sional (3D) rotating ows of an ideal gas satisfying Boyle–Charles' law by a newly refined energy-Casimir convexity (ECC) method that can exploit a larger class of Casimir in- variants. As the conventional ECC method cannot be applied directly to stratified shear ows, in our new approach, rather than checking the local convexity of a Lyapunov func- tional L ≡ E + CE defined as a sum of the total energy and a certain Casimir, we seek the condition for nonexistence of unstable manifolds: orbits (physically realisable ow in phase space) on the leaves of invariants including L as well as other Casimirs connecting a given equilibrium point O and other points in the neighbourhood of it. We argue that the separatrices of the second variation of L (δ2L = 0) generally consist of such unstable manifolds as well as pseudo unstable ones for which either the total energy or Casimirs actually serve as a barrier for escaping orbits. The significance of the new method lies in the fact that it eliminates the latter so as to derive a condition for O being an isolated equilibrium point in terms of orbital connections..

In the inductionless approximation, we find the growth rate of the three-dimensional perturbation in a closed form and demonstrate in particular that it can be positive when the velocity profile is Keplerian and the magnetic field profile is slightly shallower than $R^{-1}$..

27. Yuji Hattori, Yasuhide Fukumoto, Modal stability analysis of a helical vortex tube with axial flow, Journal of Fluid Mechanics, 10.1017/jfm.2013.591, 738, 222-249, 2014.01, The linear stability of a helical vortex tube with axial flow, which is a model of helical vortices emanating from rotating wings, is studied by modal stability analysis. At the leading order the base flow is set to the Rankine vortex with uniform velocity along the helical tube whose centreline is a helix of constant curvature and torsion. The helical vortex tube in an infinite domain, in which the free boundary condition is imposed at the surface of the tube, is our major target although the case of the rigid boundary condition is also considered in order to elucidate the effects of torsion and the combined effects of torsion and axial flow. The analysis is based on the linearized incompressible Euler equations expanded in ∈ which is the ratio of the core to curvature radius of the tube. The unstable growth rate can be evaluated using the leading-order neutral modes called the Kelvin waves with the expanded equations. At O(∈) the instability is a linear combination of the curvature instability due to the curvature of the tube and the precessional instability due to the axial flow, both parametric instabilities appearing at the same resonance condition. At the next order O(∈2) not only the effects of torsion but also the combined effects of torsion and axial flow appear, a fact which has been shown only for the short-wave limit. The maximum growth rate increases for the right-handed/left-handed helix with positive/negative helicity, in which the torsion makes the period of particle motion increase. All results converge to the previous local stability results in the short-wave limit. The differences between the two cases of different boundary conditions are due to the isolated mode of the free boundary case, whose dispersion curve depends strongly on the axial flow..

29. Yasuhide Fukumoto, Makoto Hirota, Youichi Mie, Note on representation of wave energy of a rotating flow in terms of dispersion relation, Proc. of BIRS Workshop on Spectral Analysis, Stability and Bifurcations in Nonlinear Physical Systems (eds. O. N. Kirillov and D. N. Pelinovsky, Wiley-ISTE, 2014), 139-153, 2014.01, A steady Euler flow of an inviscid incompressible fluid is characterized as an extremum of the total kinetic energy with respect to perturbations constrained to an isovortical sheet. We exploit the criticality in the Hamiltonian to calculate the energy of three-dimensional waves on a steady vortical flow, and, as a by-product, to calculate the mean flow, induced by nonlinear interaction of waves with themselves. We show that the energy of waves on a rotating flow is expressible in terms of a derivative of the dispersion relation with respect to the frequency..
30. Yasuhide Fukumoto, Hamiltonian bifurcation theory for a rotating flow subject to elliptic straining field, 10.1088/0031-8949/2013/T155/014042, 155, 014042-1-014042-10, 2013.12, A weakly nonlinear stability theory is developed for a rotating flow confined in a cylinder of elliptic cross-section. The straining field associated with elliptic deformation of the cross-section breaks the SO(2)-symmetry of the basic flow and amplifies a pair of Kelvin waves whose azimuthal wavenumbers are separated by 2, being referred to as the Moore-Saffman-Tsai-Widnall (MSTW) instability. The Eulerian approach is unable to fully determine the mean flow induced by nonlinear interaction of the Kelvin waves. We establish a general framework for deriving the mean flow by a restriction to isovortical disturbances with use of the Lagrangian variables and put it on the ground of the generalized Lagrangian-mean theory. The resulting formula reveals enhancement of mass transport in regions dominated by the vorticity of the basic flow. With the mean flow at hand, we derive unambiguously the weakly nonlinear amplitude equations to third order for a nonstationary mode. By an appropriate normalization of the amplitude, the resulting equations are made Hamiltonian systems of four degrees of freedom, possibly with three first integrals identifiable as the wave energy and the mean flow..

Here BMO, the Triebel-Lizorkin and Besov spaces are used, which extend usual Sobolev spaces much. Similar results for the quasi-geostrophic ows and the generalized MHD equations are also listed..
32. Yasuhide Fukumoto, Hirofumi Sakuma, A unified view of topological invariants of barotropic and baroclinic fluids and their application to formal stability analysis of three-dimensional ideal gas flows, 10.1016/j.piutam.2013.03.025, 7, 213-222, 2013.04, Noether's theorem associated with the particle relabeling symmetry group leads us to a unified view that all the topological invariants of a barotropic fluid are variants of the cross helicity. The similar is shown to be true of a baroclinic fluid. A cross-helicity representation is given to the Casimir invariant, a class of integrals including an arbitrary function of the specific entropy and the potential vorticity. We then develop a new energy-Casimir convexity method for three-dimensional stability of equilibria of general rotating flows of an ideal baroclinic gas, without appealing to the Boussinesq approximation. By fully exploiting the Casimir invariant, we have succeeded in ruling out a term including the gradient of a dependent variable from the energy-Casimir function and have established a sharp linear stability criterion, being an extension of the Richardson-number criterion..

Samokhin, Singular electromagnetic modes in an anisotropic medium, 10.1016/j.wavemoti.2012.11.001, 50, 481-493, 2013.03, We construct the singular mode corresponding to a spatial essential spectrum of the integral operator for the scattering of the electromagnetic waves by a three-dimensional body of finite size with inhomogeneous and anisotropic dielectric permittivity tensor. The permittivity tensor field is assumed to be H\"older continuous throughout the whole space. The singular volume integral equation, transformed from Maxwell's equations, makes it feasible to deduce explicit form of both the continuous essential spectrum and the corresponding singular modes. The obtained singular mode is a natural extension of the previously obtained one for the isotropic case and is applicable to a much wider class of dielectric scattering bodies. A discussion is made of possibility for realizability of the electromagnetic waves, with finite energy, concentrated at a point in the body..

Abuduwaili Paerhati, Yasuhide Fukumoto, An example exempted from Thomson-Tait-Chetayev's theorem, 10.7566/JPSJ.82.043002, 82, 3, 043002-1-043002-4, 2013.03, An example is given of a mechanical system whose behavior does not follow Thomson-Tait-Chetayev's (TTC) theorem which states that, for a system with an unstable potential, a state stabilized by gyroscopic forces goes unstable after the addition of arbitrary dissipation. The example is brought by a system, closely related with a heavy symmetrical top, describing motion of a charged spherical pendulum subjected to the Lorentz force, in a magnetic-monopole field sitting at the sphere center, as well as the gravity force. A drag force proportional to the velocity is exerted on the pendulum. The upright state, an equilibrium stabilized by the Lorentz force, is shown to be exempted from the TTC theorem. The numerical calculation of the full nonlinear system is performed for precession. For the slow precession, the drag force acts to continuously tilt down the top axis toward vertically downward equilibrium, following the dissipation-induced instability. On the contrary, for the fast precession, the drag acts to continuously tilt up the axis against the gravity force, despite losing the energy..
35. Oleg N. Kirillov, Frank Stefani, Yasuhide Fukumoto, A unifying picture of helical and azimuthal MRI, and the universal significance of the Liu limit, 10.1088/0004-637X/756/1/83, 756, 1, 756:83-1-756:83-6, 2012.09, The magnetorotational instability (MRI) plays a key role for cosmic structure formation by triggering turbulence in the rotating flows of accretion disks that would be otherwise hydrodynamically stable. In the limit of smallmagnetic Prandtl number, the helical and the azimuthal versions of MRI are known to be governed by a quite different scaling behavior than the standard MRI with a vertical app ied magnetic field. Using the short-wavelength approximation for an incompressible, resistive, and viscous rotating fluid, we present a unified description of helical and azimuthal MRI, and we identify the universal character of the Liu limit 2(1−2^{1/2})= 0.8284 for the critical Rossby number. From this universal behavior we are also led to the prediction that the instability will be governed by a mode with an azimuthal wavenumber that is proportional to the ratio of axial to azimuthal applied magnetic field, when this ratio becomes large and the Rossby number is close to the Liu limit..

By axial flow we mean the flow along the helical tube inside the vortex core. At the leading order the base flow is set to the Rankine vortex with uniform velocity along the helical tube. The exponential growth rate is obtained analytically as the magnitude of he sum of three O(1) and five O(2) complex numbers, where ϵ is the ratio of the core to curvature radius. At O(1) the effect of axial flow can be regarded as the effect of the Coriolis force; as a result the instability is the superposition of the curvature instability and the Coriolis or precessional instability since the two instabilities occur under the same resonance condition. At O(2) combined effects of the axial flow and the torsion appear; the maximum growth rate increases when the period of particle motion increases..

Rudi, Reynolds-number effect on vortex ring evolution in a viscous fluid, Physics of Fluids, 10.1063/1.3693276, 24, 3, 033101 (13 pages) , 2012.03, An analytical model describing vortex ring for low Reynolds numbers proposed previously by Kaplanski and Rudi [Phys. Fluids,17, 087101 (2005)], is extended to a vortex rings for high Reynolds numbers. The experimental results show that the vortex ring core takes the oblate ellipsoidal shape with increasing $Re$. In order to model this feature, we suggest an expression for the vorticity distribution, which corrects the linearized solution of the Navier-Stokes equation, with two disposable nondimensional parameters $\lambda$ and $\beta$ governing the shape of the vortex core, and derive the new expressions for the translation velocity, energy, circulation and streamfunction on the basis of it. The appropriate values of $\lambda$ and $\beta$ are calculated by equating the nondimensional energy $E_d$ and circulation $\Gamma_d$ of the theoretical vortex to the corresponding values obtained from the experimental or numerical vortex ring. To validate the model, the data adapted from the numerical study of vortex ring at $Re=1400$ performed by Danaila and Helie [Phys. Fluids,20, 073602 (2008)], is applied. It is shown that the temporal evolution of the translation velocity at high Reynolds numbers based on these data compares well with the experiments and numerical simulations..

A steady incompressible Euler flow is characterized as a state of the maximum of the total kinetic energy with respect to disturbances constrained to an isovortical sheet, and the isovortical disturbances are tractable only in terms of the Lagrangian variables. The criticality in energy of a steady flow allows us to work out the wave energy of Kelvin waves solely from the linear disturbance field. As a by-product, the mean flow of second order in amplitude, induced by the nonlinear interaction of Kelvin waves, is obtainable, which provides us with a bypass to enter into weakly nonlinear regime of amplitude evolution..

In the rotating frame, the basic flow is steady velocity field linear in coordinates in an unbounded domain constructed by Kerswell (1993), and admits the use of the WKB method. For small precession frequency, we recover Kerswell's result. A novel instability is found at large frequency for which the axial wavenumber executes an oscillation around zero; drastic growth of disturbance amplitude occurs only in an extremely short time interval around the time where the axial wavenumber vanishes. In the limit of infinite precession frequency, the growth rate exhibits singular behavior with respect to a parameter characterizing the tilting angle of the wave vector..
