Virtual element methods for the three-field formulation of time-dependent linear poroelasticity

12/12/2019 ∙ by Raimund Bürger, et al. ∙ 0

A virtual element discretisation for the numerical approximation of the three-field formulation of linear poroelasticity introduced in [R. Oyarzúa and R. Ruiz-Baier, Locking-free finite element methods for poroelasticity, SIAM J. Numer. Anal. 54 (2016) 2951–2973] is proposed. The treatment is extended to include also the transient case. Appropriate poroelasticity projector operators are introduced and they assist in deriving energy bounds for the time-dependent discrete problem. Under standard assumptions on the computational domain, optimal a priori error estimates are established. Furthermore, the accuracy of the method is verified numerically through a set of computational tests.
