This research explains how horizontal heat transport depends on the distribution of buoyancy across the horizontal boundary driving the horizontal convection flow.
This study reveals the behaviour of horizontal convection in shallow enclosures, including the key result that height replaces length as the controlling length scale in these flows.
Congratulations to Dr Zhi Ng on the conferral of his PhD today. Zhi's PhD advanced our understanding of bluff body wakes and their stability.
