The buoyancy driven flow is induced by temperature and concentration gradients in the liquid. In the directional solidification furnace the axial thermal configuration is essentially hydrodynamically stable, i.e. the temperature gradient along the sample axis (z direction) does not trigger natural convection.

However, convection is triggered by solute concentration gradients built up in the mushy zone due to solidification. The experiments were: Advanced Automated Directional Solidification Furnace (AADSF), Material pour l'Etude des Phenomenes Interessant la Solidification sur Terre et en Orbite (MEPHISTO), Space Acceleration Measurement System (SAMS), Orbital Acceleration Research Experiment (OARE), Critical Fluid Light Scattering Experiment (ZENO) and Isothermal Spacecraft: Space Shuttle Columbia.
