Viscous fluid flow in a horizontal layee due to thermal inhomogeneity of the lower boundary

  • I. P. Makarenko
  • L. M. Simuni


The nature of the flow induced in a layer by thermal inhomogeneity of one of the boundaries is determined on the basis of a numerical solution of the complete Navier -Stokes equations. It is found that stable stratification effectively suppresses the generated flow.
