Influence of vibration on soret-driven convection in porous media

Abstract : Two-dimensional thermosolutal natural convection with Soret effect under the simultaneous action of vibrational and gravitational accelerations is investigated. We consider a porous cavity saturated by a binary mixture and adopt the time-averaging formulation. For an infinite horizontal layer, a stability analysis is performed from which the threshold of stability is determined. Numerical simulations, using a pseudo-spectral Chebyshev collocation method, are performed to describe the convective motion. The problem is investigated for different aspect ratios with various directions of vibration. It is concluded that, for both the stationary and the Hopf bifurcation, the vertical vibration has a stabilizing effect while the horizontal vibration has a destabilizing effect on the onset of convection.
