Optimal error estimates of coupled and divergence-free virtual element methods for the Poisson-Nernst-Planck/Navier-Stokes equations

In this article, we propose and analyze a fully coupled, nonlinear, and energy-stable virtual element method (VEM) for solving the coupled Poisson-Nernst-Planck (PNP) and Navier–Stokes (NS) equations

Bernaise: A Flexible Framework for Simulating Two-Phase Electrohydrodynamic Flows in Complex Domains

An efficient linear, decoupled numerical scheme which sequentially solves the three sets of equations which combines a generalized Nernst--Planck equation for ion transport, the Poisson equation for electrostatics, the Cahn--Hilliard equation for the phase field, and the Navier--Stokes equations for fluid flow is presented.



On Modeling and Simulation of Electrokinetic Phenomena in Two-Phase Flow with General Mass Densities

Two- and three-dimensional numerical simulations underline the capability of diffuse interface approaches to model droplet transport, coalescence, and splitting.

Direct numerical simulation of electroconvective instability and hydrodynamic chaos near an ion-selective surface

We present a comprehensive analysis of transport processes associated with electrohydrodynamic chaos in electrokinetic systems containing an ion-selective surface. The system considered is an aqueous

Transient electrokinetic transport in a finite length microchannel: currents, capacitance, and an electrical analogy.

A parametric study involving a range of geometries, fluid mechanics, electrostatics, and mass transfer states allowed predictive submodels for the current source, capacitor, and resistor to be developed based on a dimensional analysis.

Direct numerical simulation of electroconvective instability and hysteretic current-voltage response of a permselective membrane.

The hysteresis demonstrates the important role of the electroconvective flow in enhancing of current in electrolyte systems with ion-selective membrane, at the transition between the limiting and the overlimiting current regimes.

In this paper, a stable, fully discrete splitting scheme is presented, which allows to split the governing equations into different blocks, which may be treated sequentially and thereby reduces the computational costs significantly.

Lattice Boltzmann modelling of streaming potentials: variations with salinity in monophasic conditions

S U M M A R Y The streaming potential phenomenon is produced by the flow of an electrolyte in a porous medium and is used for geophysical prospecting. It is quantified through an electrokinetic (EK)

Multiscale Modeling of Colloid and Fluid Dynamics in Porous Media Including an Evolving Microstructure

We consider colloidal dynamics and single-phase fluid flow within a saturated porous medium in two space dimensions. A new approach in modeling pore clogging and porosity changes on the macroscopic


We study a fluid-dynamical model based on a coupled Navier–Stokes–Nernst–Planck–Poisson system. Of special interest are the fluid velocity, concentrations of charged particles ranging from colloidal

Modeling and deriving porous media Stokes-Poisson-Nernst-Planck equations by a multi-scale approach

Abstract. We formulate the basic equations modeling solid-electrolyte composites without surface reactions. From these equations we achieve by the two-scale convergence method homogenized
