### A mixed finite element method for Darcy flow in fractured porous media with non-matching grids

We consider an incompressible flow problem in a N-dimensional fractured porous domain (Darcy’s problem). The fracture is represented by a (N − 1)-dimensional interface, exchanging fluid with the surrounding media. In this paper we consider the lowest-order (ℝ T0, ℙ0) Raviart-Thomas mixed finite element method for the approximation of the coupled Darcy’s flows in the porous media and within the fracture, with independent meshes for the respective domains. This is achieved thanks to an enrichment...
