Bénard-Marangoni instability, with coupled gravity and surface tension effects, in an evaporating liquid layer surmounted by its vapor and an inert gas is investigated theoretically. We show that this system can be described by a model that consists in the liquid layer equations plus the diffusion equation for the vapor in the gas (the so-called 1.5-sided model) and that this model is equivalent to a one-sided model when the vapor mass fraction field can be considered as quasi-stationary… CONTINUE READING
