A numerical study has been performed to further investigate the flow and temperature fields in layered porous cavity. The geometry considered is a square cavity with 3 or 4 non-uniform sublayers and is subjected to differential heating from the vertical walls. The results obtained are used to further evaluate the feasibility of using the lumped-system analysis for heat transfer in layered porous cavities as proposed in the previous study. To this end, the effective permeabilities based on the arithmetic and harmonic averaging schemes are examined for their use in the conjunction with the lumped-system analysis.
