The multiplicity, stability and bifurcations of low-Prandtl-number steady natural convection in a two-dimensional rectangular cavity with partially and symmetrically heated vertical walls are studied numerically. The problem represents a simple model of a set-up in which the height of the heating element is less than the height of the molten zone. The calculations are carried out by the global spectral Galerkin method. Linear stability analysis with respect to two-dimensional perturbations, a… CONTINUE READING
