...Numerical results are available up to a Prandtl number of 10 (e.g. Fujii 1963; Brand & Lahey 1967; Worster 1986) and an asymptotic analysis for large Prandtl numbers may be found in Worster (1986)....

...We used the same boundary-layer approximation and the same equations as Fujii (1963) and Worster (1986). However, we are dealing with large Prandtl numbers, and hence we have rescaled variables using the thickness of the thermal boundary layer, δκ , instead of the viscous boundary layer. With our scheme, we reproduce the results quoted by Worster (1986) for σ = 10....
