Effect of thermodiffusion on convective heat and mass transfer in enclosures with heat-conducting walls

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The influence of Soret effect on thermogravitational convection in an enclosure with heat-conducting walls of finite thickness in the presence of local heat and mass sources is numerically analyzed. The mathematical model is formulated in dimensionless variables of streamfunction-vorticity vector. Streamlines and temperature fields representing the influence of the Rayleigh number Ra = 10 5, 10 6 and the nonstationarity factor 0 < τ < 3000 are obtained.
