New, more general interface conditions are required to couple free-flow and porous-medium systems since traditional coupling concepts provide reliable results for simplified cases only. Averaging theory is a powerful mathematical tool that can be applied to derive such conditions. The objectives of this project are to (i) derive new interface concepts for single- and multi-phase flow systems using averaging techniques, (ii) validate the newly developed interface conditions, and (iii) develop robust and efficient numerical methods for coupled flow problems.
