  • Abstract

We consider a model of coupled free and porous media flow governed by Stokes equation and Darcy's law with the Beavers-Joseph-Saffman interface condition. In this paper, we propose a new numerical approach for the Stokes-Darcy system. The approach employs the classical finite element method for the Darcy region and the weak Galerkin finite element method for the Stokes region. We construct corresponding discrete scheme and prove its well-posedness. The estimates for the corresponding numerical approximation are derived. Finally, we present some numerical experiments to validate the efficiency of the approach for solving this problem.
