Contrôle en mécanique des fluides et couches limites

Abstract : This thesis is devoted to the study of the controllability of non linear partial differential equations in fluid mechanics. We are mostly interested in Burgers equation and Navier-Stokes equation. Our main goal is to prove small-time global results, even in the presence of boundary layers. We prove that it is possible to obtain such results by introducing a new method named: “well prepared dissipation”. This method proceeds in two phases: first, a quick phase using the inviscid behavior of the system, then a longer phase during which the boundary layer dissipates all by itself. Both for Burgers and for Navier-Stokes with Navier slip-with-friction boundary conditions, we prove that this dissipation is sufficient if it has been well prepared. Moreover, we study a question of local null controllability for the Burgers equation with a single scalar control. We prove by enhancing a second order kernel approach that the system is not small time locally null controllable.
