Abstract
The aim of this study is to analyze the mixed convection under Soret effect in a liquid layer subjected to adverse temperature and concentration gradients and slip conditions. Theoretical linear stability analysis and numerical methods were performed to study the convective and absolute instabilities of the transverse rolls. It is found that, for convective instabilities, the problem has analytical solution and is a Galilean transformation of natural convection. The throughflow makes the rolls to propagate and the frequency shift is proportional to Reynolds number. For higher Rayleigh numbers, advection breaks Galilean invariance, and absolute instabilities settle. At the threshold of absolute instability, the presence of throughflow breaks the symmetry by the rotational invariance, and the system selects among an infinite number of unstable modes, the progressive waves, in the direction of the flow.
