Description

It is demonstrated that the critical Maragoni number for transition from the no-motion (conduction) to the motion state in the Maragoni-Bénard problem of an infinite fluid layer heated from below and cooled from above can be increased through the use of feedback control strategies effecting small perturbation in the boundary data.
