Homogenization of the compressible Navier-stokes equations in a porous medium

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We study the homogenization of the compressible Navier-Stokes system in a periodic porous medium (of period ε) with Dirichlet boundary conditions. At the limit, we recover different systems depending on the scaling we take. In particular, we rigorously derive the so-called "porous medium equation".
