Experimental videos:  DT=10oC, Hmeniscus=1.5mm_horizontal

                                  DT=10oC, Hmeniscus=1.5mm_vertical

                                  DT=15oC, Hmeniscus=1.5mm_vertical

                                  DT=15oC, no rotation

                                  DT=15oC, rotation of 0.28 rps

                                  DT=15oC, rotation of 0.4 rps

                                  DT=20oC, no rotation

                                  DT=20oC, Hmeniscus=1.5mm

                                                   DT=20oC, Hmeniscus=1.5mm, rotation





Animations made from numerical results: 

                  DTcr=3.88oC, k=0, no rotation, small ampltude

                  DTcr=3.88oC, k=0, no rotation, large ampltude

                           DTcr=2oC, k=2, Re=200, horizontal

                           DTcr=2oC, k=2, Re=200, vertical

                           DTcr=2oC, k=3, Re=200, horizontal

                           DTcr=2oC, k=3, Re=200, vertical
