Maximum density effects on natural convection in a vertical annulus filled with a non-Darcy porous medium. (English) Zbl 0926.76109
The authors study numerically natural convection in a porous medium separated by cold walls, under density inversion, within a vertical annulus. In modelling the flow, the authors take into account the non-Darcy effects which include the Forchheimer inertia and Brinkman viscosity. The results obtained compare favourably with other numerical results and with experimental data.
