In this work, we present a numerical analysis of a method which combines a deterministic and a probabilistic approaches to quantify the migration of a contaminant, under the presence of uncertainty on the permeability of the porous medium. More precisely, we consider the flow equation in a random porous medium coupled with the advection-diffusion equation. Quantities of interest are the mean spread and the mean dispersion of the solute. The means are approximated by a quadrature rule, based on a sparse grid defined by a truncated Karhunen-Loève expansion and a stochastic collocation method. For each grid point, the flow model is solved with a mixed finite element method in the physical space and the advection-diffusion equation is solved with a probabilistic Lagrangian method. The spread and the dispersion are expressed as functions of a stochastic process. A priori error estimates are established on the mean of the spread and the dispersion.
Keywords: Uncertainty quantification, elliptic PDE with random coefficients, advection-diffusion equation, collocation techniques, anisotropic sparse grids, Monte Carlo method, Euler scheme for SDE.
