VOCs natural convective flow driven by thermo, solute and humidity buoyancy forces from a porous wall to indoor room was studied numerically in this paper, including coupled diffusion effects by three gradients interactions. The physical model for the fluid flow made use of Brinkman-Forchheimer extended Darcy equation in the porous wall and Navier-Stokes equation in the clear region. Finite element method was used to solve governing equations. Effect of interface at the interface on flow, heat and mass transfer was studied, which varied with stress jump coefficient β and permeability. The results showed that flow velocity varied greatly with increase of coefficient β in the boundary. Decrease in the value of dimensionless permeability Da also had influence on velocity variation at the interface. However, there are little influence of interface on the distribution of temperature and concentration in the whole region.
