The B nard Problem A Summary Author John M Cimbala Penn State University Latest revision 08 February 2008 1 Introduction and Problem Setup Consider two infinite stationary parallel at plates separated by distance d The T Anmld 2 012 lower plate is at temperature To and the upper plate is at temperature To AT d 1g 2L colder Initially the flow is at rest but this is an unstable situation since the warm uid on the bottom wants to rise We examine this problem using linear stability TU WW 2 quot12 analysis 2 Summary of Linear Stability Analysis applied to this problem The inclass analysis follows
