Abstract:

The study of steady fluid flow through porous media leads to the consideration of elliptic free boundary problems in the unknown function piezometric head. An integration along the vertical direction transforms these free boundary problems into variational or quasi-variational inequalities, which are easier to study both from the theoretical and from the numerical point of view.
