Methods for multi-physics couplings of fluid flow and solid mechanics

Prof. Ivan Yotov

Short course


The short course presents an introduction to finite element and finite volume methods for Darcy flow, Stokes flow, elasticity, poroelasticity, and coupled Stokes-Darcy flows. He will discuss solvability, accuracy, and efficiency of the numerical methods. The focus will be on structure preserving methods, e.g., methods with local mass or momentum conservation. He will also present domain decomposition methods for the efficient solution of the resulting algebraic systems, which allow for decoupling of different subdomains and different physics and which are suitable for parallel computers.

The course will be prepared for graduate students and postdoctoral students from several different departments (disciplines).
