Rayleigh-Benard instability tutorial

Have the results of the Rayleigh-Benard tutorial been verified against a benchmark? If so, which would it be (journal article, etc.)?

Thank you for any information you can provide.

Hi Ilaj,

The mesh for the tutorial is so coarse that I don't think think that this particular case has been verified against literature. Rather the parameters have been chosen to suite a tutorial.
