    This paper describes an analytical study of laminar natural convection on both sides of a vertical conducting wall of finite height separating two semi-infinite fluid reservoirs of different temperatures. The countercurrent boundary layer flow formed on the two sides illustrated via representative streamlines, temperature and heat flux distributions. The net heat transfer between reservoirs is reported for the general case in which the wall thermal resistance is not negligible relative to the overall reservoir-to-reservoir thermal resistance.
