### Abstract

Effects of a conductive wall on natural convection in a square porous enclosure having internal heating at a rate proportional to a power of temperature difference are studied numerically. Horizontal heating is considered, where the vertical walls are heated isothermally at different temperatures, while the horizontal walls are kept adiabatic. The Darcy model is used in the mathematical formulation for the porous layer. It is found that increasing the value of the thermal conductivity ratio and/or decreasing the thickness of solid wall can increase the maximum fluid temperature.
