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 u dV k z ρ ρ ∝ − ±²³ ±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, z h and either. a. Wave period in x and y . b. A finite domain with kinematic B.C. in x, y . (no penetration) 0 u n = 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 ρ .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
