We study the convective patterns that arise in a nearly semicylindrical cavity fed in with hot fluid at the upper boundary, bounded by a cold, porous semicircular boundary at the bottom, and infinitely extended in the third direction. While this configuration is relevant to continuous casting processes that are significantly more complex, we focus on the flow patterns associated with the particular form of mixed convection that arises in it. Linear stability analysis (LSA) and direct numerical…
