Abstract

We report new results of PIV measurements of the flow in a precessing cylinder at aspect ratios between 0.457 and 2.615, tilt angles up to 5° and Reynolds numbers ranging from 500 to 46 000. The first Kelvin mode is forced at its first resonance; its shape and saturation amplitude is extracted and found to agree well with theory. Geostrophic motion is observed and quantified.
