The walls are maintained to a constant temperature and\r\nthe inlet velocity is uniform. The dynamic range is described by the\r\nDarcy-Brinkman model and the thermal field by two energy\r\nequations model. A dimensionless formulation is developed for\r\nperforming a parametric study based on certain dimensionless groups\r\nsuch as, the Biot interstitial number, the thermal conductivity ratio\r\nand the volumetric heat generation, q '''. The governing equations are\r\nsolved using the finite volume method, gave rise to a multitude of\r\nresults concerning in particular the thermal field in the porous\r\nchannel and the existence or not of the local thermal equilibrium.","references":null,"publisher":"World Academy of Science, Engineering and Technology","index":"Open Science Index 103, 2015"}
