Abstract

Conditions leading to the emergence of convective roll instability have been identified by linear instability analysis of a stationary fluid in a slot subject to spatially distributed heating. It is found that for moderate heating wave numbers the pattern of instability is generally locked-in with the pattern of heating by a subharmonic relation, and for large heating wave numbers, the critical wave number of the rolls has the same value as the critical wave number of the rolls for uniform heating. Four different types of flow responses are observed depending on the Prandtl number of fluid.
