Nonlinear oscillatory convection in mushy layers

Abstract

We study the problem of nonlinear development of oscillatory convective instability in a two-dimensional mushy layer during solidification of a binary mixture. We adopt the near-eutectic limit, making the problem analytically tractable using standard perturbation techniques. We consider also a distinguished limit of large Stefan number, which allows a… (More)
