ABSTRACT

The classical Graetz methodology is applied to investigate the thermal development of forced convection in a parallel-plate channel or a circular tube filled by a saturated porous medium, with walls held at constant temperature. The Brinkman model is employed. The analysis leads to expressions for the local Nusselt number and average Nusselt number, as functions of the dimensionless longitudinal coordinate and the Darcy number.
