A Three-Field based optimization formulation for flow simulations in networks of fractures on non conforming meshes

by   Stefano Berrone, et al.

A new numerical scheme is proposed for flow computation in complex discrete fracture networks. The method is based on a three-field formulation of the Darcy law for the description of the hydraulic head on the fractures and uses a cost functional to enforce the required coupling condition at fracture intersections. The resulting method can handle non conforming meshes, independently built on each geometrical object of the computational domain, and ensures local mass conservation properties at fracture intersections. An iterative solver is devised for the method, ready for parallel implementation on parallel computing architectures.
