Résumé : Nonlinear convective flows developed under the joint action of buoyant and thermocapillary effects in a two-layer system with rigid heat-insulated lateral walls, have been investigated. The influence of a temperature-dependent interfacial heat release/consumption on oscillatory regimes, has been studied. It is shown that sufficiently strong temperature dependence of interfacial heat sources and heat sinks can lead to the change of the sequence of bifurcations and the development of new nonlinear regimes. Specifically, the period doubling bifurcations have been found.
