A conforming mixed finite element method for the coupling of fluid flow with porous media flow. (English) Zbl 1157.76025
Summary: We consider a porous medium entirely enclosed within a fluid region and present a well-posed conforming mixed finite element method for the corresponding coupled problem. The interface conditions refer to mass conservation, balance of normal forces and the Beavers-Joseph-Saffman law, which yields the introduction of the trace of the porous medium pressure as a suitable Lagrange multiplier. The finite element subspaces defining the discrete formulation employ Bernardi-Raugel and Raviart-Thomas elements for the velocities, piecewise constants for the pressures and continuous piecewise-linear elements for the Lagrange multiplier. We prove stability, convergence and a priori error estimates for the associated Galerkin scheme. Finally, we provide several numerical results illustrating the good performance of the method and confirming the theoretical rates of convergence.
