This paper deals with the determination of the critical parameters that induce instability in the Rayleigh-Bénard arrangement, viz. a gas confined between two rigid plates and heated from below. In order to compute the critical values of the parameters, classical thermodynamics with the Navier-Stokes and Fourier constitutive relations and extended thermodynamics with thirteen moments are used. Linear stability analysis is performed. The results of both theories are illustrated and compared.

Onset of Rayleigh-Benard convection in gases - classical and extended thermodynamics

Abstract

This paper deals with the determination of the critical parameters that induce instability in the Rayleigh-Bénard arrangement, viz. a gas confined between two rigid plates and heated from below. In order to compute the critical values of the parameters, classical thermodynamics with the Navier-Stokes and Fourier constitutive relations and extended thermodynamics with thirteen moments are used. Linear stability analysis is performed. The results of both theories are illustrated and compared.
