The stability of the Taylor vortex state in a circular Couette geometry is investigated by measuring its transition to a wavy vortex state. Seven different radius ratios, ranging from 0.7767 to 0.7972, are used to map out the stability boundaries in the Reynolds number-radius ratio plane. The results verify several important features predicted by Jones.
