Stability analysis of polytopic Discontinuous Galerkin approximations of the Stokes problem with applications to fluid-structure interaction problems

12/03/2020 ∙ by Paola F. Antonietti, et al. ∙ 0

We present a stability analysis of the Discontinuous Galerkin method on polygonal and polyhedral meshes (PolyDG) for the Stokes problem. In particular, we analyze the discrete inf-sup condition for different choices of the polynomial approximation order of the velocity and pressure approximation spaces. To this aim, we employ a generalized inf-sup condition with a pressure stabilization term. We also prove a priori hp-version error estimates in suitable norms. We numerically check the behaviour of the inf-sup constant and the order of convergence with respect to the mesh configuration, the mesh-size, and the polynomial degree. Finally, as a relevant application of our analysis, we consider the PolyDG approximation for a fluid-structure interaction problem and we numerically explore the stability properties of the method.
