Effective and energy-preserving time discretization for a general nonlinear poromechanical formulation

Abstract : We consider a general nonlinear poromechanical model, formulated based on fundamental thermodynamics principle, suitable for representing the coupling of rapid internal fluid flows with large deformations of the solid, and compatible with a wide class of constitutive behavior. The objective of the present work is to propose for this model a time discretization scheme of the partitioned type, to allow the use of existing time schemes - and possibly separate solvers - for each component of the model, i.e. for the fluid and the solid. To that purpose, we adapt and extend an earlier proposed approach devised for fluid-structure interaction in an Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian framework. We then establish an energy estimate for the resulting time scheme, in a form that is consistent with the underlying energy principle in the poromechanical formulation, up to some numerical dissipation effects and some perturbations that we have carefully identified and assessed. In addition, we provide some numerical illustrations of our numerical strategy with test problems that present typical features of large strains and rapid fluid flows, and also a case of singular transition related to total drainage. An example of challenging application envisioned for this model and associated numerical coupling scheme concerns the perfusion of the heart.
