Résumé : A horizontal ferrofluid layer is submitted to a lateral heating and to a strong oblique magnetic field. The problem, combining the momentum and heat balance equations with the Maxwell equations, introduces two Rayleigh numbers, Ra the gravitational one and Ram the magnetic one, to represent the buoyancy and the Kelvin forces, which induce motion, versus the momentum viscous diffusion and heat diffusion. Whatever the inclination of the magnetic field, the steady solution of the problem is presented as a power series of a small parameter eps_H measuring the ratio of variation of the magnetization across the layer divided by the magnitude of the external imposed field. For cases of physical relevance, comparisons between analytical and numerical studies have lead to a major statement: in the strong field region eps_H<<1 the zero order solution is the product of the Birikh solution that corresponds to the usual Newtonian fluid submitted to a lateral gradient, multiplied by a modulating factor accounting for inclination and both Rayleigh numbers. Physically, this simplified solution is valid for microgravity conditions where the magnetic field competes enough with microgravity effects to invert the laminar flow and thus suppress the motion for two specific values of the inclination angle.
