Research output: Unpublished contribution to conferenceUnpublished Conference Paperpeer-review


Finite element simulations have been performed along side Galerkin-type calculations that examined the development of volumetrically heated ow pat-terns in a horizontal layer controlled by the Prandtl number, Pr, and the Grashof number, Gr. The uid was bounded by an isothermal plane above an adiabatic plane. In the simulations performed here, a number of convective polygonal plan-forms occurred, as Gr increased above the critical Grashof number, Grc at Pr = 7, while roll structures were observed for Pr 1 at 2Grc
