The linear stability of a horizontal layer of fluid heated from below and above is considered. In addition to a steady temperature difference between the walls of the fluid layer, a time-dependent periodic perturbation is applied to the wall temperatures. Only infinitesimal disturbances are considered. Numerical results for the critical Rayleigh number are(More)
The linear thermal instability of a horizontal fluid layer with time-periodic temperature distribution is studied with the help of the Floquet theory. The time-dependent part of the temperature has been expressed in Fourier series. Disturbances are assumed to be infinitesimal. Only even solutions are considered. Numerical results for the critical Rayleigh(More)
Linear stability analysis is performed for the onset of thermosolutal convection in a horizontal fluid layer with rigid-rigid boundaries. The temperature field between the walls of the fluid layer consists of two parts: a steady part and a time-dependent periodic part that oscillates with time. Only infinitesimal disturbances are considered. The effect of(More)
The stability of a horizontal layer of fluid heated from below is examined when, in addition to a steady temperature difference between the horizontal walls of the layer a time-dependent low-frequency per­ turbation is applied to the wall temperatures. An asymptotic solution is obtained which describes the be­ haviour of infinitesimal disturbances to this(More)
Thermal convection in a fluid layer confined between two horizontal rigid boundaries has been studied with the help of the Floquet theory. The temperature distribution consists of a steady part and an oscillatory time-dependent part. Disturbances are assumed to be infinitesimal. Numerical results for the critical Rayleigh numbers and wave numbers are(More)
—In this paper, we study the thermosolutal convection in a horizontal temperature dependant viscous fluid layer. The considered temperature profile consists of two parts: a steady part and a time-dependent periodic part that oscillates with time. A weak nonlinear stability analysis has been performed by using power series expansion in terms of the amplitude(More)
