This paper gives a complete hydrodynamic theory of density relaxation after a temperature step at the boundary of a cell filled with a nearly supercritical pure fluid in microgravity conditions. It uses the matched asymptotic expansion technique to solve the one-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations written for a viscous, low-heat-diffusing, near-critical van(More)
We present one-dimensional numerical simulations reporting the temperature evolution of a pure fluid subjected to heating near its liquid-vapor critical point under weightlessness. In this model, thermal boundary conditions are imposed at the outer edges of the solids in contact with the fluid. Our investigations concern the thermal conditions at the edges(More)
