Convection in Liquids. [Jean Karl Platten; Jean Claude Legros] -- Both of the authors of this book are disciples and collaborators of the Brussels school of thermodynamics. Their particular domain of competence is the application of numerical methods to the many. Abstract. Thermocapillary convection is an important content in the study of microgravity fluid physics. It is not only the problem of fluid physics mechanism such as convection stability, but also closely related to spacecraft flow control, efficient heat transfer, etc., and has direct guiding significance for material growth processes such as floating zone method and Czochralski method.

The book summarizes results obtained in the field of interfacial convection during a number of decades, including recent developments in exploration of microfluidic convective flows. The book will appeal to researchers and graduate students working in the field of fluid dynamics. Oscillatory convection in viscoelastic ferromagnetic and dielectric liquids of the Rivlin-Ericksen, Maxwell and Oldroyd types is studied analytically by considering free-free, isothermal boundaries with idealized conditions on the magnetic / electric potential. Convection is the bulk movement of the liquid under the driving force of density differences in the liquid. In Section we shall consider the problems raised by convection driven by solutes; heavy solutes cause the liquid to sink, and the lighter solutes cause flotation. In this section, we shall confine our discussion simply to the effects of temperature: hot liquid will expand, becoming less dense, and will . Convection is the process of heat transfer in fluids by the actual motion of matter. It happens in liquids and gases. It may be natural or forced. It involves a bulk transfer of portions of the fluid. How is Heat Transferred through Convection? When a fluid is heated from below, thermal expansion takes place.

  Moreover, in liquid metals in motion, conduction can be substantial enough to modify thermal fluxes transferred by convection. Liquid metals and molten salts are practically the only fluids capable of performing heat‐transfer tasks at very high temperatures.   Click on the title to browse this book. By Steven Holzner. Thanks to physics, we know that convection can be either natural, where heat rises on its own, or forced, where you control the movement of the heat. You may have heard the maxim “heat rises,” which is all about convection. However, a more accurate statement is that “hot fluid rises.”. In substances where convection is free to take place — that is, in gases and liquids — hotter material .   In general, since alcohol and water are both liquids, convection has a greater influence on their temperature distribution. To suppress the upward flow of heated water during microwave heating, we envisage adding a partition in the long glass to isolate the upper and lower parts of .
