Free energy diminishing discretization of Darcy-Forchheimer flow in poroelastic media

05/21/2021 ∙ by Jakub Wiktor Both, et al. ∙ 0

In this paper, we develop a discretization for the non-linear coupled model of classical Darcy-Forchheimer flow in deformable porous media, an extension of the quasi-static Biot equations. The continuous model exhibits a generalized gradient flow structure, identifying the dissipative character of the physical system. The considered mixed finite element discretization is compatible with this structure, which gives access to a simple proof for the existence, uniqueness, and stability of discrete approximations. Moreover, still within the framework, the discretization allows for the development of finite volume type discretizations by lumping or numerical quadrature, reducing the computational cost of the numerical solution.
