Paper Title:
Natural Convection in a Cavity Partially Filled with a Vertical Porous Medium
  Abstract

The shear stress jump boundary condition that must be imposed at an interface between a porous medium and a free fluid in an enclosure is investigated. Two-domain approach is founded and finite element method is used to solve the problem. Three stress jump coefficients 0, 1, -1 are analyzed for different Rayleigh number, permeability and thickness of porous layer. Variation of Maximum stream function and Nusselt number show stronger convection and heat transfer when the stress jump coefficient is positive. There is little distinctive in flow and heat transfer when the value of coefficient is equal to 0 and -1.
