The dynamics of a fluid flow inside 2D square and 3D cubic cavities under various configurations were simulated and analyzed using a spectral code I developed. This code was validated against known studies in the 3D lid-driven cavity. It was then used to explore the various dynamical behaviors close to the onset of instability of the steady-state flow, and explain in the process the mechanism underlying an intermittent bursting previously observed. A fairly complete bifurcation picture emerged, using a combination of computational tools such as selective frequency damping, edge-state tracking and subspace restriction. The code was then used to investigate …
