Comparison between rough and smooth plates within the same Rayleigh-Bénard cell

Abstract

In a Rayleigh-Bénard cell at high Rayleigh number, the bulk temperature is nearly uniform. The mean temperature gradient differs from zero only in the thin boundary layers close to the plates. Measuring this bulk temperature allows to separately determine the thermal impedance of each plate. In this work, the bottom plate is rough and the top plate is smooth; both interact with the same bulk flow. We compare them and address in particular the question whether the influence of roughness goes through a modification of the bulk flow.
