Abstract

We report experimental and numerical studies of combined natural and magnetic convection of a paramagnetic fluid inside a cubical enclosure heated from below and cooled from above and subjected to a magnetic field gradient. Values of the magnetic field gradient are in the range 9 <= vertical bar grad vertical bar b(0)vertical bar(2)vertical bar <= 900 T-2/m for imposed magnetic field strengths in the center of the superconducting magnet bore of 1 <= vertical bar b(0)vertical bar(max) <= 10 T. Very good agreement between experiments and simulation is obtained in predicting the integral heat transfer over the entire range of working parameters (i.e., thermal Rayleigh number 1.15 x 10(5) <= Ra-T <= 8 x 10(6), Prandtl number 5 <= Pr <= 700, and magnetization number 0 <= gamma <= 58.5). We present a stability diagram containing three characteristic states: steady, oscillatory (periodic), and turbulent regimes. The oscillatory states are identified for intermediate values of Pr (40 <= Pr <= 70) and low magnetic field (vertical bar b(0)vertical bar(max) <= 2 T). Turbulent states are generated from initially stable flowand heat transfer regimes in the range of 70 <= Pr <= 500 for sufficiently strong magnetic field (vertical bar b(0)vertical bar(max) <= 4 T).
