Abstract: The nonlinear interfacial waves between viscous immiscible liquids have been analyzed, using the concepts of viscous potential flow and Kelvin-Helmholtz instability. The method of multiple scales is used for determining the evolution equations that are near and on the marginal state of the linear theory. We use the modulation concept in solving these equations to determine the stability criteria. Different numerical examples are considered that show the system is at greater risk of instability when the velocity of the stream is larger, whereas the effects of viscosity can be stabilizing or destabilizing.
