Abstract :

Stokes flow, also known as Viscous flow, has its application in the fields of mechanical engineering such as oil flow in journal bearing, aerodynamics such as flow around wings, environmental engineering such as groundwater flow and biomedical applications such as cardiovascular flows. All these flows are governed by incompressible stokes flow equation. The governing equations are solved numerically by method such as Finite Element Method(FEM). Rapid and economic evaluation of output has given rise to the parametrization of governing partial differential equation and subsequently, Reduced Basis(RB) methods. The presentation demonstrates the proper orthogonal decomposition based reduced order modelling of stokes flow in geometrically parametrized domain.
