We develop a mixed finite element method for the coupled problem arising in the interaction between a free fluid governed by the Stokes equations and flow in deformable porous medium modeled by the Biot system of poroelasticity. Mass conservation, balance of stress, and the Beavers–Joseph–Saffman condition are imposed on the interface. We consider a fully mixed Biot formulation based on a weakly symmetric stressdisplacementrotation elasticity system and Darcy velocitypressure flow formulation. A velocitypressure formulation is used for the Stokes equations. The interface conditions are incorporated through the introduction of the traces of the structure velocity and the Darcy pressure as Lagrange multipliers. Existence and uniqueness of a solution are established for the continuous weak formulation. Stability and error estimates are derived for the semidiscrete continuousintime mixed finite element approximation. Numerical experiments are presented to verify the theoretical results and illustrate the robustness of the method with respect to the physical parameters.more » « less

Abstract. We consider a nonlinear, moving boundary, fluidstructure interaction problem between a time dependent incompressible, viscous fluid flow, and an elastic structure composed of a cylindrical shell supported by a mesh of elastic rods. The fluid flow is modeled by the timedependent Navier Stokes equations in a threedimensional cylindrical domain, while the lateral wall of the cylinder is modeled by the twodimensional linearly elastic Koiter shell equations coupled to a onedimensional system of conservation laws defined on a graph domain, describing a mesh of curved rods. The mesh supported shell allows displacements in all three spatial directions. Twoway coupling based on kinematic and dynamic coupling conditions is assumed between the fluid and composite structure, and between the mesh of curved rods and Koiter shell. Problems of this type arise in many ap plications, including blood flow through arteries treated with vascular prostheses called stents. We prove the existence of a weak solution to this nonlinear, moving boundary problem by using the time discretization via Lie operator splitting method combined with an Arbitrary LagrangianEulerian approach, and a nontrivial extension of the AubinLionsSimon compactness result to problems on moving domains.more » « less

Abstract This work focuses on modeling the interaction between an incompressible, viscous fluid and a poroviscoelastic material. The fluid flow is described using the time‐dependent Stokes equations, and the poroelastic material using the Biot model. The viscoelasticity is incorporated in the equations using a linear Kelvin–Voigt model. We introduce two novel, noniterative, partitioned numerical schemes for the coupled problem. The first method uses the second‐order backward differentiation formula (BDF2) for implicit integration, while treating the interface terms explicitly using a second‐order extrapolation formula. The second method is the Crank–Nicolson and Leap‐Frog (CNLF) method, where the Crank–Nicolson method is used to implicitly advance the solution in time, while the coupling terms are explicitly approximated by the Leap‐Frog integration. We show that the BDF2 method is unconditionally stable and uniformly stable in time, while the CNLF method is stable under a CFL condition. Both schemes are validated using numerical simulations. Second‐order convergence in time is observed for both methods. Simulations over a longer period of time show that the errors in the solution remain bounded. Cases when the structure is poroviscoelastic and poroelastic are included in numerical examples.

In this paper we introduce a constructive approach to study wellposedness of solutions to stochastic uidstructure interaction with stochastic noise. We focus on a benchmark problem in stochastic uidstructure interaction, and prove the existence of a unique weak solution in the probabilistically strong sense. The benchmark problem consists of the 2D timedependent Stokes equations describing the ow of an incompressible, viscous uid interacting with a linearly elastic membrane modeled by the 1D linear wave equation. The membrane is stochastically forced by the timedependent white noise. The uid and the structure are linearly coupled. The constructive existence proof is based on a timediscretization via an operator splitting approach. This introduces a sequence of approximate solutions, which are random variables. We show the existence of a subsequence of approximate solutions which converges, almost surely, to a weak solution in the probabilistically strong sense. The proof is based on uniform energy estimates in terms of the expectation of the energy norms, which are the backbone for a weak compactness argument giving rise to a weakly convergent subsequence of probability measures associated with the approximate solutions. Probabilistic techniques based on the Skorohod representation theorem and the GyongyKrylov lemma are then employed to obtain almost sure convergence of a subsequence of the random approximate solutions to a weak solution in the probabilistically strong sense. The result shows that the deterministic benchmark FSI model is robust to stochastic noise, even in the presence of rough white noise in time. To the best of our knowledge, this is the rst wellposedness result for stochastic uidstructure interaction.more » « less

Abstract We introduce and analyze a partially augmented fully mixed formulation and a mixed finite element method for the coupled problem arising in the interaction between a free fluid and a poroelastic medium. The flows in the free fluid and poroelastic regions are governed by the Navier–Stokes and Biot equations, respectively, and the transmission conditions are given by mass conservation, balance of fluid force, conservation of momentum and the Beavers–Joseph–Saffman condition. We apply dualmixed formulations in both domains, where the symmetry of the Navier–Stokes and poroelastic stress tensors is imposed in an ultraweak and weak sense. In turn, since the transmission conditions are essential in the fully mixed formulation, they are imposed weakly by introducing the traces of the structure velocity and the poroelastic medium pressure on the interface as the associated Lagrange multipliers. Furthermore, since the fluid convective term requires the velocity to live in a smaller space than usual, we augment the variational formulation with suitable Galerkintype terms. Existence and uniqueness of a solution are established for the continuous weak formulation, as well as a semidiscrete continuousintime formulation with nonmatching grids, together with the corresponding stability bounds and error analysis with rates of convergence. Several numerical experiments are presented to verify the theoretical results and illustrate the performance of the method for applications to arterial flow and flow through a filter.more » « less
