Fig. 5.136 a, b Chaotic solutions for the model under the natural boundary conditions (Huang and Dewar, 1996).
The model used is based on the Boussinesq approximations with the effect of rotation omitted (Sun and Sun, 2007). The basic equations are:
where u = (u, w) is the velocity vector. Since the flow field is incompressible, the velocity is divergenceless, and a streamfunction exists u = —fz, w = (5.260)
