Hysteresis in Filtration through Porous MediaF. Bagagiolo and Augusto Visintin (1) Università di Padova, Italy

We study an evolution problem for filtration through porous media, accounting for hysteresis in the saturation versus pressure constitutive relation. We provide a weak formulation of the problem, assuming that the memory effect in the constitutive relation consists not only of a rate-independent component but also of a rate-dependent one. We prove an existence result, which also applies to the case where the hysteresis operator is of Preisach-type.
Keywords: Degenerate parabolic equations, hysteresis, filtration, variational inequalities
