This paper describes a comprehensive study of the natural convection phenomenon occurring inside a porous layer with both heat and mass transfer from the side. The natural circulation is driven by a combination of buoyancy effects due to both temperature and concentration variations. The scale analysis is used to sort out the many effects that influence the overall heat and mass transfer results of numerical experiments.
