Effect of a horizontal magnetic field on convective instabilities in mercury

Abstract : The effect of a horizontal magnetic field on the three-dimensional instabilities which occur in a Rayleigh-Bénard experiment with mercury is studied. When the magnetic field is parallel to the roll axis, the Busse oscillatory instability is inhibited, and the fluid motions become bidimensional. The high heat transport may be associated with an inertial convection mode.
