- The present study demonstrated that calculated thermocapillary convection in a non-cylindrical floating zone can now be compared with measured one, by considering the lens effect of the floating zone. Flow visualization and computer simulation of thermocapillary convection in a silicone oil zone and a molten zone in an NaNO3 rod were conducted. The calculated results agree very well with the measured ones, including the free surface shapes, the solid/melt interface shapes and the velocity fields.
