We derive the equations of motion for the dynamics of porous medium, filled with incompressible fluid. We use a variational approach with a Lagrangian written as the sum of terms representing the kinetic and potential energy of the elastic matrix, and the kinetic energy of the fluid, coupled through the constraint of incompressibility. As an illustration of the method, the equations of motion for both the elastic matrix and the fluid are derived in the spatial (Eulerian) frame. Such an approach… Expand

Variational geometric approach to the thermodynamics of porous media
Abstract Many applications of porous media research involves high pressures and, correspondingly, exchange of thermal energy between the fluid and the matrix. While the system is relatively wellExpand
Actively deforming porous media in an incompressible fluid: a variational approach
Many parts of biological organisms are comprised of deformable porous media. The biological media is both pliable enough to deform in response to an outside force and can deform by itself using theExpand
Multisymplectic variational integrators for barotropic and incompressible fluid models with constraints
It is shown how the geometric integrator can handle regular fluid motion in vacuum with free boundaries and constraints such as the impact against an obstacle of a fluid flowing on a surface. Expand


Variational formulation of pre-stressed solid-fluid mixture theory, with an application to wave phenomena
Fluid saturated porous media are modelled by the theory of mixtures and the placement maps of the solid and of the fluid are considered. The momentum balance equations are derived in the framework ofExpand

Nonlinear equation governing flow in a saturated porous medium
It is argued that the appropriate generalization of Darcy's law when inertia effects are included takes the form ∇p = −(μ/k) V − (ρc/k½)|V|V, div V = 0, where k is the permeability of the medium andExpand
