A Priori Error Estimate of a Multiscale Finite Element Method for Transport Modeling

Abstract : This work proposes an \textit{a priori} error estimate of a multiscale finite element method to solve convection-diffusion problems where both velocity and diffusion coefficient exhibit strong variations at a scale which is much smaller than the domain of resolution. In that case, classical discretization methods, used at the scale of the heterogeneities, turn out to be too costly. Our method, introduced in~\cite{ECCOMAS}, aims at solving this kind of problems on coarser grids with respect to the size of the heterogeneities by means of particular basis functions. These basis functions are defined using cell problems and are designed to reproduce the variations of the solution on an underlying fine grid. Since all cell problems are independent from each other, these problems can be solved in parallel, which makes the method very efficient when used on parallel architectures. This article focuses on the proof of an \textit{a priori} error estimate of this method.
