Patterns of solidification in channel flows with surface cooling

Griffiths, Ross; Kerr, Ross; Cashman, Katharine

Description

Understanding the rates of cooling and solidification in laminar flows down sloping channels is central to predicting the advance of lava flows. The mechanisms involved include thermal convection and a competition between shear strain rate and the rate of formation of solid at the chilled surface of the flow. We report experiments in which polyethylene glycol wax flows in a laminar fashion down an inclined, open channel of rectangular cross-section under cold water. Two distinctly different...[Show more]
