Marangoni convection in a fluid layer with internal heat generation


Bachok, Norfifah and Md. Arifin, Norihan (2008) Marangoni convection in a fluid layer with internal heat generation. In: 5th International Conference on Fluid Dynamics, 17-19 Sep. 2008, Bangkok, Thailand. (pp. 196-198).

Abstract / Synopsis

In this paper we use classical linear stability theory to investigate the effects of uniform internal heat generation on the onset of Marangoni convection in a horizontal layer of fluid heated from below. We use a analytical technique to obtain the close form analytical expression for the onset of Marangoni convection when the lower boundary is conducting with free-slip condition. We show that the effect of increasing the internal heat generation is always to destabilize the layer.
