The 1: 2 Mode Interaction in Rayleigh-bÉnard convection with and without Boussinesq Symmetry

Abstract

Nonlinear two-dimensional Rayleigh–Bénard convection with periodic boundary conditions in the horizontal is studied for spatial periods near the 1:2 steady state mode interaction. The boundary conditions at the bottom are no-slip, and convection is driven by a fixed imposed temperature difference across the layer. Homotopic continuation is used to continue… (More)
