Transient forced convection near a suddenly heated plate in a porous medium

This paper describes the time evolution of the temperature and heat transfer in the vicinity of a flat wall embedded in a parallel flow through a saturated porous medium. The flow is uniform and steady, while the wall is suddenly subjected to heating or cooling. Two distinct problems are considered: the wall with suddenly imposed uniform temperature, and the wall with suddenly imposed uniform heat flux. © 1991.
