Abstract

In a number of studies concerning the lateral heating of a vertical rectangular enclosure containing a stably stratified brine solution, diverse flow regimes have been observed for different values of the buoyancy ratio. In this Brief Communication, certain intervals of the buoyancy ratio have been revealed to possess multiple steady flows. The presence of the multiple solutions was demonstrated to be underlain by complex bifurcation phenomena including numerous limit points and the symmetry-breaking bifurcation. The results appear to be insightful for the understanding of various findings of previous works.
