We propose a numerical analysis of proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) model reductions in which a priori error estimates are expressed in terms of the projection errors that are controlled in the construction of POD bases. These error estimates are derived for generic parabolic evolution PDEs, including with non-linear Lipschitz right-hand sides, and for wave-like equations. A specific projection continuity norm appears in the estimates and – whereas a general uniform continuity bound seems out...

The standard multilayer Saint-Venant system consists in introducing fluid layers that are advected by the interfacial velocities. As a consequence there is no mass exchanges between these layers and each layer is described by its height and its average velocity. Here we introduce another multilayer system with mass exchanges between the neighboring layers where the unknowns are a total height of water and an average velocity per layer. We derive it from Navier-Stokes system with an hydrostatic pressure...

Cultivating oleaginous microalgae in specific culturing devices such as raceways is seen as a future way to produce biofuel. The complexity of this process coupling non linear biological activity to hydrodynamics makes the optimization problem very delicate. The large amount of parameters to be taken into account paves the way for a useful mathematical modeling. Due to the heterogeneity of raceways along the depth dimension regarding temperature, light intensity or nutrients availability, we adopt...
