Abstract

The fully developed natural convection flow of a viscous fluid in a porous channel is modeled and studied numerically. The walls are kept at constant temperatures. The effects of various dimensionless parameters emerging in the model are studied graphically. It has been noted that the velocity and temperature both depend on the heat source and the free convection parameters.
