Multisymplectic variational integrators for barotropic and incompressible fluid models with constraints

by   François Demoures, et al.

We present a structure preserving discretization of the fundamental spacetime geometric structures of fluid mechanics in the Lagrangian description in 2D and 3D. Based on this, multisymplectic variational integrators are developed for barotropic and incompressible fluid models, which satisfy a discrete version of Noether theorem. We show how the geometric integrator can handle regular fluid motion in vacuum with free boundaries and constraints such as the impact against an obstacle of a fluid flowing on a surface. Our approach is applicable to a wide range of models including the Boussinesq and shallow water models, by appropriate choice of the Lagrangian.
