Pressure-robust error estimate of optimal order for the Stokes equations on domains with edges

by   Thomas Apel, et al.

The velocity solution of the incompressible Stokes equations is not affected by changes of the right hand side data in form of gradient fields. Most mixed methods do not replicate this property in the discrete formulation due to a relaxation of the divergence constraint which means that they are not pressure-robust. A recent reconstruction approach for classical methods recovers this invariance property for the discrete solution, by mapping discretely divergence-free test functions to exactly divergence-free functions in the sense of H(div). Moreover, the Stokes solution has locally singular behavior in three-dimensional domains near concave edges, which degrades the convergence rates on quasi-uniform meshes and makes anisotropic mesh grading reasonable in order to regain optimal convergence characteristics. Finite element error estimates of optimal order on meshes of tensor-product type with appropriate anisotropic grading are shown for the pressure-robust modified Crouzeix–Raviart method using the reconstruction approach. Numerical examples support the theoretical results.
