The time profile DeltaT(t) of the temperature difference, measured across a very compressible fluid layer of supercritical 3He after the start of a heat flow, shows a damped oscillatory behavior before steady-state convection is reached. The results for DeltaT(t) obtained from numerical simulations and from laboratory experiments are compared over a temperature range where the compressibility varies by a factor of approximately 40. First the steady-state convective heat current j(conv) as a… CONTINUE READING
