This work investigates the influence of thermal conductivity ratio on energy and mass transport across a porous square cavity. Modeling of heat transfer from side to side of the enclosure assumed the hypothesis of thermal non-equilibrium between the solid matrix and the fluid phase. Transport equations were discretized using the control-volume method and the system of algebraic equations obtained was relaxed via the SIMPLE algorithm. Results showed that Shw, mass flux of chemical species and heat flux in the solid phase are strongly dependent of ks/kf, significantly increasing their values as such ratio increases.
