It has recently been argued that steady-state vorticity bands cannot arise in shear thickening suspensions because the normal stress imbalance across the interface between the bands will set up particle migrations. In this Letter, we develop a simple continuum model that couples shear thickening to particle migration. We show by linear stability analysis that homogeneous flow is unstable towards vorticity banding, as expected, in the regime of negative constitutive slope. In full nonlinear computations, we show, however, that the resulting vorticity bands are unsteady, with spatiotemporal patterns governed by stress-concentration coupling. We furthermore show that these dynamical bands also arise in direct particle simulations, in good agreement with the continuum model.
