On the homogenization of multicomponent transport

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • This paper is devoted to the homogenization of weakly coupled cooperative parabolic systems in strong convection regime with purely periodic coefficients. Our approach is to factor out oscillations from the solution via principal eigenfunctions of an associated spectral problem and to cancel any exponential decay in time of the solution using the principal eigenvalue of the same spectral problem. We employ the notion of two-scale convergence with drift in the asymptotic analysis of the factorized model as the lengthscale of the oscillations tends to zero. This combination of the factorization method and the method of two-scale convergence is applied to upscale an adsorption model for multicomponent flow in an heterogeneous porous medium.
