Homogenization of a Free Boundary Problem: The no-Slip Condition

  • Ben Schweizer
Conference paper


We present results on the homogenization of a fluid problem with a free boundary. We make reference to results published in 2000. There we have used a slip-condition along the walls in order to give a rigorous derivation of the limit equations. One expects that the same limit equations hold also for a no-slip condition. This contribution analyzes the specific difficulties that appear in the case of a no-slip condition; we present some results that indicate how homogenization could be proved in this case.
