homogenization theory; Stokes flow; porous media; numerical experiments
We consider applications, illustration and concrete numerical treatments of some homogenization results on Stokes flow in porous media. In particular, we compute the global permeability tensor corresponding to an unidirectional array of circular fibers for several volume-fractions. A 3-dimensional problem is also considered.
