This paper identifies a new mechanism for amplification of stochastic disturbances in channel flows of strongly elastic polymer solutions. For streamwise constant flows with high elasticity numbers µ and non-vanishing Reynolds numbers Re, the O(µRe 3 ) scaling of the variance amplification is established using singular perturbations techniques. This demonstrates that large variances can be maintained in stochastically driven flows occurring in weak inertial/strong elastic regimes.doi:10.1109/acc.2009.5160632 dblp:conf/amcc/JovanovicK09 fatcat:x2qb5f5ucjc5fivqz26sggntqi
