[SMP44-12] Development of the Stokes-Darcy coupled flow code for simulating the geothermal system in geological time scale.
Keywords:Stokes flow, Darcy flow, nonlinear solver
This presentation reports the preliminary results of the development of a coupled simulation code solving Stokes and Darcy equations. The governing equations are based on the work of Katz et. al (2007) which deals with compaction pressure in addition to the hydrostatic and dynamic pressure. Our implementation is designed to include concepts of fracture network commonly used in the engineering field of ground water simulation. We use a hybrid discretization scheme with 1) finite difference method with marker in cell scheme for the Stokes part and 2) finite volume method with unstructured grid for the Darcy part. The non-linear equations of the system are solved by a JFNK frame work (Furuichi and May, 2015). We will perform a series of numerical experiments to demonstrate the feasibility of our developed code.
