Choice of measure source terms in interface coupling for a model problem in gas dynamics.

Abstract : This paper is devoted to the mathematical and numerical analysis of a coupling procedure for one-dimensional Euler systems. The two systems have different closure laws and are coupled through a thin fixed interface. Following the work of [5], we propose to couple these systems by a bounded vector-valued Dirac measure, concentrated at the coupling interface, which in the applications may have a physical meaning. We show that the proposed framework allows to control the coupling conditions and we propose an approximate Riemann solver based on a relaxation approach preserving equilibrium solutions of the coupled problem. Numerical experiments in constrained optimization problems are then presented to assess the performances of the present method. 1. Introduction The study of large-scale and complex problems exhibiting a wide range of physical space and time scales (see for instance [62, 35, 14]), usually requires separate solvers adapted to the resolution of specific scales. This is the case of many industrial flows. Let us quote, for example, the numerical simulation of two-phase flows applied to the burning liquid oxygen-hydrogen gas in rocket engines [58]. This kind of flow contains both separated and dispersed two-phase flows, due to atomization and evaporation phenomena. This requires appropriate models and solvers for separated and dispersed phases that have to be appropriately coupled. Another example concerns turbomachine flows which can be modeled by the Euler equations of gas dynamics with different closure laws between the stages of the turbine, where the conditions of temperature and pressure are strongly heterogeneous. The coupling of these different systems is thus necessary to give a complete description of the flow inside the whole turbine. The method of interface coupling allows to represent the evolution of such flows, where different models are separated by fixed interfaces. First, coupling conditions are specified at the interface to exchange information between the systems. The definition of transmission conditions generally results from physical consideration, e.g. the conservation or the continuity of given variables. Then, the transmission conditions are represented at the discrete level. The study of interface coupling for nonlinear hyperbolic systems has received attention for several years. In [43], the authors study the scalar case from both mathematical and numerical points of view.
