Title:Effect of rotation on structure of convecting mushy layer
Author(s):Riahi, Daniel N.; Sayre, Tracy L.
Convecting Mushy Layer
Abstract:Nonlinear natural convection in a mushy layer during solidification of a binary alloy is investigated under a high gravity environment where the rotation axis is inclined to the high gravity vector. Asymptotic and scaling analyses are applied to convective flow within the mushy layer and in vertical chimneys. The main result is that, for some particular moderate rotation range, vertical velocity in the chimneys decreases rapidly with increasing rotation rate and appears to have opposite signs across some rotation dependent vertical level.
