Abstract

The weak turbulence regime associated with non-steady and non-periodic free convection, in models allowing temporal irregular (i.e. chaotic) solutions is reviewed, and the conditions for its validity are specified. The rich dynamics linked to the transition from steady convection to chaos is demonstrated and explained analytically as well as computationally.
