This paper presents numerical solutions for turbulent flow in a channel containing a layer of porous material with wavy form. One unique set of transport equations, for mass and momentum, is applied to both regions, namely the clear and porous domains. Effects of interface wave number on mean and turbulence fields are investigated. Results indicate that around the peaks of the sinusoidal layer values of the turbulent kinetic energy are higher for lower values of n, where n is the wave number associated with the wavy interface shape. Also, as the surface gets rough (high n), the use of a jump condition for the diffusion flux across the interface does not affect the pressure drop along the channel.
