Finite element approximation of a Cahn-Hilliard-Navier-Stokes system. (English) Zbl 1144.35043
The author considers a semi-discrete finite element approximation of a Cahn-Hilliard-Navier-Stokes system. This system arises in the modelling of multiphase fluid systems. An order \(h\) error estimate between the solution of the system and the solution of the semi-discrete approximation is obtained. The convergence of fully discrete approximation is demonstrated. The effectiveness of this approach is illustrated by a numerical example.
