Model of diffusion in partially fissured media. (English) Zbl 1017.35016
Summary: We consider an \(\varepsilon\)-periodic structure formed by two interwoven and connected components which stand for the fissure system and the porous matrix. We assume that on the matrix-fissure interface the pressure has a jump of order \(\varepsilon^{-1}\) with respect to the fluid flux which is continuous. We prove that the corresponding homogenized system is exactly that proposed by G. I. Barenblatt, Yu. P. Zheltov and I. N. Kochina [PMM, J. Appl. Math. Mech. 24, 1286-1303 (1961; Zbl 0104.21702)].
