Wave Convection Regimes in an Inclined Layer of Nano Fluid
Pages : 539-543
The experimental investigation of thermogravitational convection has been carried out for an inclined layer of nanofluid heated from below. It is shown that when the Rayleigh convection arises in the dependence of inclination angles and temperature drops are observed the regimes of traveling rolls with the cross-roll instability, the attenuation of secondary flow partially or throughout the layer, climbing and gliding dislocations. The maps of flow regimes have been built; the convective heat transfer has been investigated.
