- A direction splitting approach for incompressible Brinkmann flow (2012)
- The direction splitting approach proposed earlier in , aiming at the efficient solution of Navier-Stokes equations, is extended and adopted here to solve the Navier-Stokes-Brinkman equations describing incompressible flows in plain and in porous media. The resulting pressure equation is a perturbation of the incompressibility constrained using a direction-wise factorized operator as proposed in . We prove that this approach is unconditionally stable for the unsteady Navier-Stokes-Brinkman problem. We also provide numerical illustrations of the method's accuracy and efficiency.
