The variation of wall temperature as a function of location and time for known wall heat flux is reported for the fluid-only and porous media cases. A first set of experiments examines the fluid-only case and a second is conducted using a glass-water medium. A few published studies using a glass-water porous medium provide benchmarks. The experiments also use steel and polyethylene beads. Each water-solid combination produces a specific range of Rayleigh-Darcy numbers.
