# Natural convection fluid flow and heat transfer in porous media

@inproceedings{Bez2007NaturalCF, title={Natural convection fluid flow and heat transfer in porous media}, author={Elsa B{\'a}ez and Alfredo Nicol{\'a}s}, year={2007} }

Natural convection and heat transfer of fluid flow are studied numerically inside a rectangular cavity with inclination filled with a porous medium. The mass and momentum equations are given by the Darcy equations coupled with the thermal energy equation through the unsteady Boussinesq approximation. The two-dimensional restriction in terms of the stream function and vorticity variables is considered. The study is analyzed in terms of several values of the parameters that determine the… CONTINUE READING
