dc.description.abstractThis study elucidates the origin of the multiplicity of stable oscillatory flows detected by time integration in tall rectangular cavities heated from the side. By using continuation techniques for periodic orbits, it is shown that initially unstable branches, arising at Hopf bifurcations of the basic steady flow, become stable after crossing Neimark-Sacker points. There are no saddle-node or pitchfork bifurcations of periodic orbits, which could have been alternative mechanisms of stabilization. According to the symmetries of the system, the orbits are either fixed cycles, which retain at any time the center symmetry of the steady flow, or symmetric cycles involving a time shift in the global invariance of the orbit. The bifurcation points along the branches of periodic flows are determined. By using time integrations, with unstable periodic solutions as initial conditions, we determine which of the bifurcations at the limits of the intervals of stable periodic orbits are sub- or supercritical.
