Natural Convection of a Reiner-Rivlin-Fluid in a Rectangular Enclosure

  • K. J. Röpke
  • P. Schümmer


The principle mechanism of laminar natural convection in rectangular enclosures has been investigated by several scientists. But nearly all papers published are dealing with Newtonian fluids and constant physical properties. Regarding technical fluids however the influence of non-Newtonian fluid behaviour and variable properties is of more interest.
