The results of the calculations and analysis of the effect of separate and joint rotation of the crystal and the crucible on the flow stability are presented for a wide range of Prandtl numbers (from 0.01 to 10). The regimes with a high stability threshold are determined for different combinations of the rotation velocities. It is shown that for high Prandtl numbers, simultaneous rotation of the crystal and the crucible makes it possible to increase the critical Grashof number in 9–12 times. A resultant diagram (map) of the limiting regimes of natural and mixed convection is constructed. Themethodology of control and analysis of 2D and 3D instability modes is discussed.
