    Abstract This paper deals with the investigation of thermovibrational convection induced by harmonic oscillations of the temperature boundary conditions related to the hot wall in a Bridgman-like (VB) geometrical configurations. Two different models of the VB configuration are considered (a simplified version referred to as "restricted" model and a more realistic and complete model with phase change allowed). The effects of temperature modulation are considered for both models and with regard to several possible initial (basic) states (stationary and oscillatory). In the restricted fluid cavity, we identify the existence of a critical frequency minimizing the flow More >
