We present a study of the influence of air height on the pattern formation at the onset of interfacial convection in a liquid -gas bilayer. Bilayer convection results from interaction of two immiscible, superposed fluid layers and it is a transport problem that is affected by the ratios of various thermophysical properties and geometries. By using both calculations and experiments, a new convection-coupling mechanism is revealed. When the gas depth is low the convection is dominant in the liquid. It is of the Rayleigh Marangoni type and subcritical convection may be seen for axisymmetric patterns at the onset. For large gas heights the convection in the upper fluid layer simultaneously generates transverse thermal gradients along the fluid-fluid interface immediately causing surface tension gradient and buoyancy driven-convection in the lower fluid. The convection in the gas is of the Rayleigh type and the self-adjoint nature of the mathematical problem is depicted in the experiment wherein no subcritical motion occurs. In both the calculations and the experiment, silicone oil and air were used as the two fluids. As the viscosity of air is quite low compared to the silicone oil, convection in the air has no mechanical influence on the silicone oil and it is this property that is advantageous in isolating the new convection mechanism. The correspondence between theory and experiment is excellent. [less ▲]
