Free Convection in a Porous Medium

Application ID: 278

This example treats the modeling of sub-surface flow where free convection in porous media is analyzed. The results are compared with published literature in the field.

The model couples the momentum balance to an energy balance through an equation, dependent on temperature, being directly typed into the source term for the momentum balance. This shows COMSOL Multiphysics' unique equation-based modeling abilities and can be considered as a benchmark model for COMSOL Multiphysics capabilities in single-phase porous media flow.
