The effects of porous sleeve properties on the flow stability in rotating cylinders are numerically investigated in this study. To this end, three-dimensional momentum equations for the porous and fluid layers are formulated separately in terms of velocity and vorticity. These equations are then numerically solved over a wide range of parameters (10−2 ≤ Da ≤ 10−5 , 2000 ≤ Ta ≤ 5000) to determine the critical Taylor number for the onset of flow instability for various porous sleeve properties. The results obtained show that the presence of a porous sleeve in general has a stabilizing effect on the flow in the annulus.
