[01033] Convective instabilities in vertical porous media

  • Session Time & Room : 5C (Aug.25, 13:20-15:00) @D101

  • Abstract : Stability of natural convection in vertical porous slabs is of significant importance due to its applications in several natural and industrial settings – building insulation involving an unventilated air gap and for breathing walls is one of them. In this talk, we will discuss natural convection in a vertical porous slab with a differential temperature between the vertical walls. We show that a temperature-dependent thermal diffusivity/dynamic viscosity plays an important on the convective stability.
