Abstract

Double Diffusive convection in a horizontal layer of Maxwell visco-elastic fluid in a porous medium in the presence of constant vertical magnetic field and Soret coefficient is investigated. Flow in porous medium is characterized by Darcy model. The normal mode method is used to find linear stability analysis for the fluid layer confined between two free-free boundary surfaces. The stability criterions for stationary and oscillatory convection have been derived. Effects of various parameters on the stationary have been obtained analytically and graphically.
