. Existence, uniqueness and regularity theory is developed for a general initialboundaryvalue problem for a system of partial differential equations which describes the Biot consolidation model in poroelasticity as well as a coupled quasistatic problem in thermoelasticity. Additional effects of secondary consolidation and pore fluid exposure on the boundary are included. This quasistatic system is resolved as an application of the theory of linear degenerate evolution equations in Hilbert space, and this leads to a precise description of the dynamics of the system. 1. Introduction We shall consider a system modeling diffusion in an elastic medium in the case for which the inertia effects are negligible. This quasistatic assumption arises naturally in the classical Biot model of consolidation for a linearly elastic and porous solid which is saturated by a slightly compressible viscous fluid. The fluid pressure is denoted by p(x; t) and the displacement of the structure by u(x; t). ...

We report on some recent progress in the mathematical theory of nonlinear fluid transport and poromechanics, specifically, the design, analysis and application of mathematical models for the flow of fluids driven by the coupled pressure and stress distributions within a deforming heterogeneous porous structure. The goal of this work is to develop a set of mathematical models of coupled flow and deformation processes as a basis for fundamental research on the theoretical and numerical modeling and simulation of flow in deforming heterogeneous porous media.

. A second order accurate numerical scheme is proposed for a thermoelastic system which models a bar made of two distinct materials. The physical parameters involved may be discontinuous across the joint of the two materials, where there might be also singular heat and/or force sources. The solution components, the temperature and the displacement, may change rapidly across the joint. By transforming the system into a different one, timemarching schemes can be used for the new system which is wellposed. The immersed interface method is employed to deal with the discontinuities of the coefficients and the singular sources. The proposed numerical method can fit both explicit and implicit formulation. For the implicit version, a stable and fast PredictionCorrection scheme is also developed. Convergence analysis shows that our method is second order accurate at all grid points in spite of the discontinuities across the interface. Numerical experiments are performed to support the theor...

: We consider dynamical resp. quasistatic thermoelastic contact problems in R n modeling the evolution of temperature and displacement in an elastic body that may come into contact with a rigid foundation. The existence of solutions to these dynamical resp. quasistatic nonlinear problems and the exponential stability are investigated using a penalty method. Interior smoothing effects in the quasistatic case are also disussed.

If\Omega ae R n (n 2) denotes the reference configuration, we assume that the smooth boundary @\Omega consists of three mutually disjoint parts \Gamma D ; \Gamma N ; \Gamma C such that @\Omega = \Gamma D [ \Gamma N [ \Gamma c ,...
