Abstract

In this paper a low dimensional dynamical system is used to model the local evolution of a disturbance superimposed on a basic shear flow. In particular, non-linear interactions between planar waves and oblique waves which travel phase-locked in the far wake of a cylinder are simulated. At this aim a low- dimensional dynamical system is derived by imposing the respect of a non- linear truncation condition together with those phase-locked condition experimentally observed. The numerical results are compared with some recent experimental results obtained analysing the dynamics of a cylinder far wake. Different experimental conditions were modelled by dynamical systems defined by one or more coupled triadic systems. The energy spectral dis
