The Simulation of Transient Heat Transfer in a Thermal Boundary Layer

The onset of convection in a horizontal layer is widely recognised as the simplest example of hydrodynamic instability where nonlinear temperature profile prevails. A newly defined transient Rayleigh number that incorporates the mode of heat transport and the critical time can be used to predict...
