Abstract

The effects resulting from the Maxwell-Cattaneo law in Rayleigh-Bénard convection in Maxwell’s viscoelastic fluid are studied using the Galerkin technique. The effects of one linear and five nonlinear basic temperature gradients are studied on the onset of convection. The Eigenvalue is obtained for free-free, rigid-rigid, rigid-free, velocity boundary combinations with isothermal boundaries. A linear stability analysis is performed. The influence of various parameters on the onset of convection has been analyzed.
