Abstract

G-jitter characterizes a small fluctuating gravitational field brought about, among others by crew movements and machine vibrations aboard spacecrafts or in other low-gravity environments such as the drop-tower and parabolic flights. In this dissertation, Crank-Nicolson scheme is used to determine the numerical solution of the g-jitter induced free convection with constant heat flux. The governing equations are solved numerically using different values of Prandtl numbers. Results included are the variations of the skin friction, wall temperature, the velocity and temperature profiles.
