The combined effect of uniform rotation and porous layer on natural convective heat transfer in a square cavity with a local heater has been studied numerically. The local thermal equilibrium model with the Brinkman-extended Darcy law has been used for description of the heat transfer and fluid flow within the porous layer. Governing equations with corresponding boundary conditions formulated using the non-dimensional stream function and vorticity variables have been solved by the finite difference method. The effects of Taylor number and porous layer thickness on fluid flow and heat transfer have been examined. It has been found a non-linear effect of the porous layer thickness on the heat transfer rate.
