Section 9.6.3 through 9.8
The Long Horizontal Cylinder
for a Heated Cylinder:
remaining walls well insulated.
Fluid layer is thermally stable.
Thermal instability yields a regular convection pattern in the form of roll cells.
Buoyancy drive flow is turbulent
A primary cellular flow is established, as the core
becomes progressively more quiescent, and
secondary (corner) cells develop with increasing
Fluid layer is unconditionally stable.
