|Abstract:||Generalised Couette flow of two viscous, incompressible, immiscible fluids with heat transfer through two straight parallel horizontal walls is studied. A naturally permeable material of high porosity bound below the lower wall and the flow inside the porous medium is assumed to be of moderate permeability, modeled by Brinkman equation. Analytical solutions of the momentum and energy equations have been obtained for the flow domain by dividing it into three zones. Appropriate matching conditions of velocity and temperature have been used to link various flow regimes. The effects of inverse permeability parameter, Reynolds number and viscous parameter on velocity fields and temperature fields in various zones along with mass flow rate, skin-friction at the walls and rates of heat transfer have been presented.|
