Abstract

This work explores both experimentally and theoretically, the cumulative effects of small particle-liquid density difference, where the particles are used as tracers in recirculating flow. As an example we take a flow field generated in a differentially heated cavity. The main flow structure in such a cavity consist in one or two spiraling motions. Long-term observations of such structures with the help of tracers indicated that accumulation of the particles may set in at some flow regions. For theoretical insight into the phenomenon, a simple analytical model of recirculating flow was studied. (after Authors)
