The stability of the onset of thermal convection of a conducting viscous fluid in a porous medium has been investigated using the linear (normal mode technique) and the non-linear (energy) stability theories. Both the theories show that the stability region is increased to the maximum extent when the usual viscous dissipation is also present in addition to the dissipation due to Darcy’s resistance and Joule heating.
