    Abstract:
    This paper reports a fundamental study of the phenomenon of natural convection heat and mass transfer near a vertical surface embedded in a fluid-saturated porous medium. The buoyancy effect is due to the variation of temperature and concentration across the boundary layer. The interest in this class of flows has been stimulated by heat transfer engineering applications such as geothermal energy conversion and thermal insulation design.
