Observation of a new boundary layer instability in argon and oxygen near the gas-liquid critical point
Max-Planck-Institut für Physik - Föhringer Ring 6, D-80805
Accepted: 20 November 1995
A new type of hydrodynamic instability has been observed in the boundary layer convection of argon and oxygen on a heated vertical plate when the fluids are very near the gas-liquid critical point [ . The convection pattern has been investigated by means of video microscopy. Characteristic properties of the convection structures are described.
