A free discontinuity approach to optimal profiles in Stokes flows

  title={A free discontinuity approach to optimal profiles in Stokes flows},
  author={Dorin Bucur and A. Chambolle and Alessandro Giacomini and Mickael Nahon},
. In this paper we study obstacles immerged in a Stokes flow with Navier boundary conditions. We prove the existence and regularity of an obstacle with minimal drag, among all shapes of prescribed volume and controlled surface area, taking into account that these shapes may naturally develop geometric features of codimension 1. The existence is carried out in the framework of free discontinuity problems and leads to a relaxed solution in the space of special functions of bounded deformation… 



On optimum profiles in Stokes flow

In this paper, we obtain the first-order necessary optimality conditions of an optimal control problem for a distributed parameter system with geometric control, namely, the minimum-drag problem in

Microshape Control, Riblets, and Drag Minimization

A mathematical framework for the optimization problem is constructed, the existence of an optimal solution by $\Gamma$-convergence arguments is proved, and the stability of the drag with respect to the microstructure is analyzed.

Boundary Behavior of Viscous Fluids: Influence of Wall Roughness and Friction-driven Boundary Conditions

We consider a family of solutions to the evolutionary Navier–Stokes system supplemented with the complete slip boundary conditions on domains with rough boundaries. We give a complete description of

A Variational Approach to the Isoperimetric Inequality for the Robin Eigenvalue Problem

The isoperimetric inequality for the first eigenvalue of the Laplace operator with Robin boundary conditions was recently proved by Daners in the context of Lipschitz sets. This paper introduces a

Quasistatic Crack Growth in Nonlinear Elasticity

Abstract.In this paper, we prove a new existence result for a variational model of crack growth in brittle materials proposed in [19]. We consider the case of n-dimensional nonlinear elasticity, for

Faber–Krahn Inequalities for the Robin-Laplacian: A Free Discontinuity Approach

Isoperimetric inequalities for the principal eigenvalues of the Robin-Laplacian are interpreted as free discontinuity problems (of unusual type). We prove a full range of Faber–Krahn inequalities in

Quasistatic Evolution Problems for Linearly Elastic–Perfectly Plastic Materials

The problem of quasistatic evolution in small strain associative elastoplasticity is studied in the framework of the variational theory for rate-independent processes. Existence of solutions is

Mathematical Tools for the Study of the Incompressible Navier-Stokes Equations and Related Models

The objective of this self-contained book is two-fold. First, the reader is introduced to the modelling and mathematical analysis used in fluid mechanics, especially concerning the Navier-Stokes
