An FFT method for the computation of thermal diffusivity of porous periodic media

An FFT method for the computation of thermal diffusivity of porous periodic media In this paper, we provide fast Fourier transform (FFT) iterative schemes to compute the thermal diffusivity of a periodic porous medium. We consider the fluid flow through a porous rigid solid due to a prescribed macroscopic gradient of pressure and a macroscopic gradient of temperature. As already proved in the literature, the asymptotic homogenization procedure is reduced to the resolution of two separated problems for the unit cell: (i) the fluid flow governed by the Stokes equations with an applied gradient of pressure, and (ii) the heat transfer by both convection and conduction due to an applied macroscopic gradient of temperature. We develop new numerical approaches based on FFT for the implementation of the cell problems. In a first approach, a simple iterative method based on the primal variable (gradient of temperature) is provided to solve the heat transfer problem. In order to improve the convergence in the range of high values of the prescribed gradient of pressure, we propose a more sophisticated iterative scheme based on the polarization.

Abstract

In this paper, we provide fast Fourier transform (FFT) iterative schemes to compute the thermal diffusivity of a periodic porous medium. We consider the fluid flow through a porous rigid solid due to a prescribed macroscopic gradient of pressure and a macroscopic gradient of temperature. As already proved in the literature, the asymptotic homogenization procedure is reduced to the resolution of two separated problems for the unit cell: (i) the fluid flow governed by the Stokes equations with an applied gradient of pressure, and (ii) the heat transfer by both convection and conduction due to an applied macroscopic gradient of temperature. We develop new numerical approaches based on FFT for the implementation of the cell problems. In a first approach, a simple iterative method based on the primal variable (gradient of temperature) is provided to solve the heat transfer problem. In order to improve the convergence in the range of high values of the prescribed gradient of pressure, we propose a more sophisticated iterative scheme based on the polarization. In order to evaluate their capacities, these FFT algorithms are applied to some specific microstructures of interest including flows past parallel pores (Poiseuille flows) and periodically or randomly distributed cylinders.
