In this work, we design and analyze a Hybrid High-Order (HHO) discretization method for incompressible flows of non-Newtonian fluids with power-like convective behaviour. We work under general assumptions on the viscosity and convection laws, that are associated with possibly different Sobolev exponents r ∈ (1,∞) and s ∈ (1,∞). After providing a novel weak formulation of the continuous problem, we study its well-posedness highlighting how a subtle interplay between the exponents r and s…

A pressure-robust HHO method for the solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations on general meshes
A novel divergence-preserving velocity reconstruction is introduced that hinges on the solution inside each element of a mixed problem on a subtriangulation, then is used to design discretizations of the body force and convective terms that lead to pressure robustness.


A Hybrid High-Order method for creeping flows of non-Newtonian fluids
The proposed Hybrid High-Order discretization method has several appealing features including the support of general meshes and high-order, unconditional inf-sup stability, and orders of convergence that match those obtained for scalar Leray–Lions problems.
A Hybrid High-Order Method for the Steady Incompressible Navier–Stokes Problem
This work shows under general assumptions the existence of a discrete solution, which is also unique provided a data smallness condition is verified, and proves convergence of the sequence of discrete solutions to minimal regularity exact solutions for general data.
Finite element approximation of an incompressible chemically reacting non-Newtonian fluid
We consider a system of nonlinear partial differential equations modelling the steady motion of an incompressible non-Newtonian fluid, which is chemically reacting. The governing system consists of a
Finite Element Approximation of Steady Flows of Incompressible Fluids with Implicit Power-Law-Like Rheology
It is shown that a subsequence of the sequence of finite element solutions converges to a weak solution of the problem as the finite element discretization parameter $h$ tends to $0$.
Finite element approximation of steady flows of generalized Newtonian fluids with concentration-dependent power-law index
A regularization of the model is formulated by introducing an additional term in the conservation-of-momentum equation and a finite element approximation of the regularized system is constructed.
Stability and convergence analysis of a semi-implicit fractional FEM-scheme for non-Newtonian fluid flows of polymer aqueous solutions with fractional time-derivative
A fully discrete fractional semi-implicit FEM-scheme is developed to study the non-Newtonian fluid flow of polymer aqueous solutions in a two-dimensional domain using Caputo's fractional time-derivative and application to the lid-driven cavity problem in complex geometry is presented.
