Hydrodynamic Stability Lecture 16 HW Problem: For the Benard problem, prove that for neutral conditions 3 0 fluctuating density and horizontal velocity average of fluctuating density. V udV k z ρ ∝− ±²³ That is, that the heat flux at the bottom is proportional to the buoyancy flux over the whole domain. Where: 1. The volume integral is over ( ) 0, zh and either. a. Wave period in x and y . b. A finite domain with kinematic B.C. in x, y . (no penetration) 0 un = i ´´ 2. () denotes average over x-y plane at a given z. Hints: steady state, no growth or decay. Same assumptions about density, linear, work with x-y average equation for . Shear term The effect of shear can be either stabilizing or destabilizing – depends on sign of ( which depends on the streamlines. ) 013 uu Example Pure Convection 1
