Porous materials are used for thermal insulation of buildings and cold storage warehouses in walls. The floating constants in Weber's boundary layer solution for free convection in a differentially heated vertical porous slab are re-evaluated with a new approach. This approach uses Weber's solution to calculate the net vertical heat flux which is equated to zero near the top and bottom ends of the enclosure.
