Growth factors for Marangoni instability in a spherical liquid layer under zero-gravity conditions
- 16 Downloads
The neutral-stability analysis presented by Hoefsloot et al.  is completed by computing the growth factorsβ for the normal modes and by showing that the neutral states (Re(β)=0) are stationary (Im(β)=0) rather than oscillatory (Im(β)≠0).
