Paper presents the numeral results of transient natural convection in a partially porous enclosure with a heat-conducting and heat-generating element. The horizontal walls of the cavity are adiabatic, while the vertical ones are isothermal and have low temperature. A mathematical model formulated in dimensionless variables such as vorticity, stream function and temperature have been solved by means of the finite difference method. The governing parameters are the porous layer thickness and dimensionless time. The effects of these parameters are shown using streamlines, isotherms and average temperature of the heat-conducting element. The results demonstrate an opportunity to intensify the passive cooling system using the porous layer.
