Using an efficient and accurate Ritz method, the thermo-convective stability of a bottom-heated porous layer in elliptic and semi-elliptic enclosures with adiabatic side walls is studied. The stability mosaics for the critical Rayleigh number and the preferred modes are determined for the first time.
