Abstract: Simulations are shown for steady nanofluid saturated with porous medium in a vertical channel divided into two way by placing a thin baffle. Tiwari and Das model applied for continuity, momentum and energy equations are written using to define the nanofluid and non-Darcy model used for porous medium. The nonlinear equations are solved analytically using regular perturbation method and by semi analytical method using differential transform method. The validity of the solutions obtained by perturbation method and differential transform method are compared and found that they agree very well for small values of perturbation parameters. The numerical values of the velocity and temperature are shown graphically at different baffle positions for all the pertinent parameters. The Nusselt number for both regular and nanofluids are evaluated and tabulated.
