Abstract
Two parallel, non-iterative, multi-physics, domain decomposition methods are proposed to solve a coupled time-dependent Stokes-Darcy system with the Beavers-Joseph-Saffman-Jones interface condition. For both methods, spatial discretization is effected using finite element methods. The backward Euler method and a three-step backward differentiation method are used for the temporal discretization. Results obtained at previous time steps are used to approximate the coupling information on the interface between the Darcy and Stokes subdomains at the current time step. Hence, at each time step, only a single Stokes and a single Darcy problem need be solved; as these are uncoupled, they can be solved in parallel. The unconditional stability and convergence of the first method is proved and also illustrated through numerical experiments. The improved temporal convergence and unconditional stability of the second method is also illustrated through numerical experiments.
