Combined Finite Element — Particles Discretisation for Simulation of Transport-Dispersion in Porous Media

  • Conference paper
Computational Fluid Dynamics 2008

Abstract

Combining finite element together with particle methods provide one of the best compromise for solving transport problem in porous media. Saturated or non-saturated flows are determined by boundary condition and the media permeability. 1For real terrain, permeability can consist in various almost constant and imbricated zones with complex shapes. Thus, it is of some interest that the boundary between two adjacent zones coincides with a natural mesh interface and that each element is entirely contains in one such zone. Beside this, solving transport equation by means of particle methods offers two distinctive advantages. The method is unconditionally stable when applied to a pure convective equation, and it does not contain any numerical diffusion if the particle trajectories are correctly computed. Therefore the combination of finite elements and particle method appears to be a straightforward application of the principle: “the right method at the right place”.
