A theoretical model for horizontal convection at high Rayleigh number
We present a simple flow model and solution to describe 'horizontal convection' driven by a gradient of temperature or heat flux along one horizontal boundary of a rectangular box. Following laboratory observations of the steady-state convection, the model is based on a localized vertical turbulent plume from a line or point source that is located anywhere within the area of the box and that maintains a stably stratified interior. In contrast to the 'filling box' process, the convective...[Show more]
