Abstract

This paper presents the analysis of the natural convection process that takes place near a vertical plane wall embedded in a constant temperature and linearly mass stratified fluid (the Prandtl number and the Smith number are smaller than 1.0, while the Lewis number is greater than 1.0). The wall has a constant temperature, while the flux of a certain constituent is constant at this boundary. The scale analysis and the finite differences method are used as techniques of work. The scale analysis proves the existence, at equilibrium, of heat and/or mass driven convection regimes along the wall. The finite differences method is used solve the governing equations and to verify the scale analysis results using two particular parameters sets.
