Error analysis for the finite element approximation of the Brinkmann-Darcy-Forchheimer model for porous media with mixed boundary conditions

Abstract

This paper deals with the finite element approximation of the Darcy-Brinkman-Forchheimer equation, involving a porous media with spatially-varying porosity, with mixed boundary condition such as inhomogeneous Dirichlet and traction boundary conditions. We first prove that the considered problem has a unique solution if the source terms are small enough. The convergence of a Taylor-Hood finite element approximation using a finite element interpolation of the porosity is then proved under similar smallness assumptions. Some optimal error estimates are next obtained when assuming the solution to the Darcy-Brinkman-Forchheimer model are smooth enough. We end this paper by providing a fixed-point method to solve iteratively the discrete non-linear problems and with some numerical experiments to make more precise the smallness assumptions on the source terms and to illustrate the theoretical convergence results.
