Abstract

Combined convection in an inclined channel bounded by porous walls is studied. Expressions for the velocity distribution, mass flow rate, and its fractional increases are obtained. When the upper permeable bed is at rest (U = 0), the results are in agreement with that of Rudraiah and Wilfred (Nat. Acad. Sci. Lett. 3 (1980), 49). Further, when the permeability parameter k → 0, the results agree with that of Ruth ("Department Report 129," Univ. of Calgary, 1978). © 1992.
