Numerical convergence of discrete extensions in a space-time finite element, fictitious domain method for the Navier-Stokes equations

by   Mathias Anselmann, et al.

A key ingredient of our fictitious domain, higher order space-time cut finite element (CutFEM) approach for solving the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations on evolving domains (cf. <cit.>) is the extension of the physical solution from the time-dependent flow domain Ω_f^t to the entire, time-independent computational domain Ω. The extension is defined implicitly and, simultaneously, aims at stabilizing the discrete solution in the case of unavoidable irregular small cuts. Here, the convergence properties of the scheme are studied numerically for variations of the combined extension and stabilization.
