A linear stability analysis of the buoyant-thermocapillary flow in open rectangular cavities with aspect ratios in the range Gamma=1.2 to 8 is carried out for Prandtl number Pr=10 and conditions of previous experiments. The results are in very good agreement with most available experimental data. The energy transfer between the basic and the perturbation flow reveals that buoyancy is not directly instrumental in the instabilities. For aspect ratios less than about three a stationary three… CONTINUE READING
