Finite element method for Darcy's problem coupled with the heat equation

Abstract : In this article, we study theoretically and numerically the heat equation coupled with Darcy's law by a nonlinear viscosity depending on the temperature. We establish existence and uniqueness of the exact solution by using a Galerkin method. We propose and analyze two numerical schemes based on finite element methods. An optimal a priori error estimate is then derived for each numerical scheme. Numerical experiments are presented that confirm the theoretical accuracy of the discretization.
