Rayleigh-B\'enard convection with a melting boundary

12 Jan 2019 Favier Benjamin Purseed Jhaswantsing Duchemin Laurent

We study the evolution of a melting front between the solid and liquid phases of a pure incompressible material where fluid motions are driven by unstable temperature gradients. In a plane layer geometry, this can be seen as classical Rayleigh-B\'enard convection where the upper solid boundary is allowed to melt due to the heat flux brought by the fluid underneath...
