Multi-Point approximations for thermo-poroelasticity

Jan and Eirik have just uploaded a new paper entitled An introduction to Multi-Point Flux (MPFA) and Multi-Point Stress (MPSA) Finite Volume Methods for Thermo-Poroelasticity, to arxiv. The paper gives a unified presentation of the MPFA/MPSA family of methods, including formulation, method properties and implementational aspects. The paper covers much of the development that has […]

Higher order FE schemes for the wave equation

A paper has recently appeared in Mathematics of Computations:

Post-processed Galerkin approximation of improved order for wave equations by M. Bause, U. Koecher, F.A. Radu and F. Schieweck,

The paper is about higher order FE schemes in time and space for the wave equation. The main point is the introduction of a post processing […]

Flow upscaling in fractured porous media

A paper has recently appeared in Journal of Computational Physics:

Formal upscaling and numerical validation of unsaturated flow models in fractured porous media by F.List, K. Kumar, I.S. Pop and F.A. Radu

Formal upscaling is performed for a domain containing one fracture. The medium is assumed to be unsaturated. Depending on the ratio between […]
