We consider unsteady flows of compressible Navier-Stokes-Fourier equations in domains with bottoms that are not flat and where the fluid fulfils Navier's slip boundary conditions. Dealing with weak solutions whose long-time and large data existence has been recently established, we investigate their behavior for vanishing Mach number (the square of this small parameter appears also in the Navier slip condition), and prove their convergence towards the weak solution of the so-called Boussinesq approximation with the no-slip boundary condition. The fact that we treat the Navier boundary condition brings several interesting features in the analysis of acoustic waves, in particular the strong convergence of the velocity field.

We study the low Mach number limit for the compressible Navier-Stokes system supplemented with Navier's boundary condition on an unbounded domain with compact boundary. Our main result asserts that the velocities converge pointwise to a solenoidal vector field - a weak solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes system - while the fluid density becomes constant. The proof is based on a variant of local energy decay property for the underlying acoustic equation established by Kato.
