Abstract [en]

We provide the numerical analysis for a Nitsche-based cut finite element formulation for the Oseen problem, which has been originally presented for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations by Schott and Wall (2014) and allows the boundary of the domain to cut through the elements of an easy-to-generate background mesh. The formulation is based on the continuous interior penalty (CIP) method of Burman et al. (2006) which penalizes jumps of velocity and pressure gradients over inter-element faces to counteract instabilities arising for high local Reynolds numbers and the use of equal order interpolation spaces for the velocity and pressure. Since the mesh does not fit the boundary, Dirichlet boundary conditions are imposed weakly by a stabilized Nitsche-type approach. The addition of CIP-like ghost-penalties in the boundary zone allows to prove that our method is inf-sup stable and to derive optimal order a priori error estimates in an energy-type norm, irrespective of how the boundary cuts the underlying mesh. All applied stabilization techniques are developed with particular emphasis on low and high Reynolds numbers. Two-and three-dimensional numerical examples corroborate the theoretical findings. Finally, the proposed method is applied to solve the transient incompressible Navier-Stokes equations on a complex geometry.
