The aim of this paper is to study the effect of vibrations on convective instability of reaction fronts in porous media. The model contains reaction-diffusion equations coupled with the Darcy equation. Linear stability analysis is carried out and the convective instability boundary is found. The results are compared with direct numerical simulations.
