Paper Title:
Thermosolutal Convection in a Partly Multi-Layred Porous Annular Cavity
  Abstract

The present study analyzes numerically the mixed thermosolutal convection in a vertical partly porous annular cavity. The fluid motion in the porous matrix is described by the generalized Darcy-Brinkman-Forchheimer model. The results show that the composite porous layer tends to improve the heat transfer and moderately reduce the transfer of aqueous solution compared to the case of a homogeneous porous partition. This conclusion is valid for all characteristic values (Da, ) or the flow modes set up in the porous matrix.
