Revised: 16 November 2004
We study the theoretical and numerical coupling of two hyperbolic systems of conservation laws at a fixed interface. As already proven in the scalar case, the coupling preserves in a weak sense the continuity of the solution at the interface without imposing the overall conservativity of the coupled model. We develop a detailed analysis of the coupling in the linear case. In the nonlinear case, we either use a linearized approach or a coupling method based on the solution of a Riemann problem. We discuss both approaches in the case of the coupling of two fluid models at a material contact discontinuity, the models being the usual gas dynamics equations with different equations of state. We also study the coupling of two-temperature plasma fluid models and illustrate the approach by numerical simulations.
