We present a theoretical and experimental study of the thermal convection in a fluid-filled, tilted cylindrical cavity and in a fluid-saturated porous medium filling a cylindrical cavity embedded in a solid slab (solid rock) which has a constant vertical temperature gradient far from the cavity. Closed-form, analytical solutions are obtained for the temperature field in the solid and for the velocity, temperature and pressure within the cavity.
