In this work, a domain decomposition strategy for non-linear hyper-reduced-order models is presented. The basic idea consists of restricting the reduced-order basis functions to the nodes belonging to each of the subdomains into which the physical domain is partitioned. An extension of the proposed domain decomposition strategy to a hybrid full-order/reduced-order model is then described. The general domain decomposition approach is particularized for the reduced-order finite element approximation of the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations with hyper-reduction. When solving the reduced incompressible Navier–Stokes equations, instabilities in the form of large gradients of the recovered reduced-order unknown at the subdomain interfaces may appear, which is the motivation for the design of additional stability terms giving rise to penalty matrices. Numerical examples illustrate the behavior of the proposed method for the simulation of the reduced-order systems, showing the capability of the approach to adapt to configurations which are not present in the original snapshot set.
