  • ▪ Abstract This review summarizes recent experimental studies of instabilities in free-surface flows driven by thermocapillarity
  • Two broad classes are considered, depending upon whether the imposed temperature gradient is perpendicular or parallel to the free surface. Both steady and time-dependent instabilites are reviewed in experiments employing both large- and small-aspect-ratio geometries of various symmetries
