Abstract:
This contribution deals with a system of nonlinear differential equations arising from the coupled water and heat flow through a partially saturated porous media. The existence of a global weak solution of the problem on an arbitrary interval of time is proved by means of discretization in time, deriving suitable a-priori estimates and concluding that the solutions of steady problems converge to the solution of the original problem.
