A heurestic higher-order analysis of a thermal relaxation oscillator
(English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
The oscillatory behaviour of a diﬀerentially heated system, based on two connected vessels containing a ﬂuid with a nonlinear equation of state, has been sub jected to an asymptotically valid analysis. The quotient of the vessel volumes was used as expansion parameter, and it was found that the analytically determined corrections to the zeroth-order results served a useful purpose even for quite large values of the volume ratio.
