Thermoelectric convection in a planar capacitor: theoretical studies and experiments in parabolic flights
Comptes Rendus. Mécanique, Volume 351 (2023) no. S2, pp. 273-287.

Thermoelectric convection in a plane capacitor is investigated in a microgravity environment and in the case of the thermal stable and unstable stratification in terrestrial conditions. Energetic analysis shows that in the thermal stable stratification, the thermoelectric convection is delayed while in the thermal unstable stratification, it is enhanced by the Archimedean buoyancy before the latter takes over the dielectrophoretic buoyancy and drives natural thermal convection. An experiment in parabolic flights shows the formation of thermoelectric convection at the end of the microgravity phase.

Nous avons étudié la convection thermoélectrique dans un condensateur plan placé dans un environnement de microgravité et dans des conditions terrestres avec une stratification thermique instable ou stable. L’analyse énergétique montre que dans le cas de stratification stable, la convection thermoélectrique est retardée alors que dans le cas de stratification thermique instable, elle est amplifiée par la poussée d’Archimède avant que cette dernière ne prenne le dessus et pilote la convection thermique naturelle. Une expérience réalisée lors des vols paraboliques illustre la formation de la convection thermoélectrique à la fin de la phase de microgravité.
