Unformatted text preview: 1 (10 is appropriate for cold water; too high for air), r is the Rayleigh number 2 , and b is the aspect ratio of the vortex cell. For = 10, r = 28, and b = 8 / 3, the solution is a strange attractor with fractal dimension 2 . 06. Take the initial conditions x (0) = 0, y (0) = 1, and z (0) = 0, with t f = 30. 1 Dimensionless ratio / of momentum diFusivity (kinematic viscosity) to thermal diFusivity. 2 Dimensionless number describing heat owif the Rayleigh number is below (above) a critical value, heat transfer is dominated by conduction (convection)....
