We consider a one-dimensional incompressible flow through a porous medium undergoing deformations such that the porosity and the hydraulic conductivity can be considered as functions of the flux intensity. We prove that if one approximates the porosity with a constant then the solution of the hyperbolic problem converges to the classical continuous Green–Ampt solution, also in the presence of shocks. In general, however, the shocks remain present in any approximating solution.

Abstract

We consider a one-dimensional incompressible flow through a porous medium undergoing deformations such that the porosity and the hydraulic conductivity can be considered as functions of the flux intensity. We prove that if one approximates the porosity with a constant then the solution of the hyperbolic problem converges to the classical continuous Green–Ampt solution, also in the presence of shocks. In general, however, the shocks remain present in any approximating solution.
