Standing-wave oscillations in binary mixture convection: from the onset via symmetry breaking to period doubling into chaos.

Abstract

Oscillatory solution branches of the hydrodynamic field equations describing convection in the form of a standing wave (SW) in binary fluid mixtures heated from below are determined completely for several negative Soret coefficients psi. Galerkin as well as finite-difference simulations were used. They were augmented by simple control methods to obtain also… (More)
