Convection in a neutral fluid vs the magnitude of the heat source , shown for symmetric heat source (solid) and asymmetric heat source (dotted).
Convection cells for an unstable neutral fluid.
Stability function for neutral fluid for several values of . Unstable for .
Heat flux for neutral fluid, for symmetric heating (solid) and asymmetric heating (dotted) cases.
Convection cells from asymmetric source, for stable sourcing (a) and unstable sourcing (b), are similar in form.
Convection vs heating in a magnetized plasma, with symmetric heat source (solid) and asymmetric heat source (dotted).
Stability parameter for magnetized plasma, corresponding to Fig. 3.
Heat flux plotted vs heat source shows subcritical heat flux in the asymmetric case.
Magnetic flux is also transported by convection cells. (symmetric heating—solid line; asymmetric heating—dotted line).
in the asymmetric stable case shows very little variation in the direction.
in the asymmetric stable case shows significant variation in the direction.
