A nonlinear degenerate system modelling water-gas flows in porous media

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • The aim of this paper is to study a system modelling the flow of an incompressible phase (water) and a compressible phase (gas) in porous media. Two kinds of degeneracy appear for this problem: a dissipative term and an evolution term degenerate with respect to the saturation. Global weak solutions are established for the system by introducing several approximate models. The first one consists in obtaining a non-degenerate dissipative system. The second one is a time discretization method in order to overcome the degeneracy in the evolution term. At this step, the subproblem is a non- degenerate elliptic system which is strongly coupled and highly nonlinear. Then the Leray-Schauder fixed point theorem instead of a classical Schauder fixed point theorem is the key point to solve such a problem.
