It is well known that model order reduction techniques that project the solution of the problem at hand onto alow-dimensional subspace present difficulties when this solution lies on a non-linear manifold. To overcomethese difficulties—notably, an undesirable augment in the number of requiredmodesin the solution—severalsolutions have been suggested. Among them we can cite the use of non-linear dimensionality reductiontechniques or, alternatively, the employ of local linear reduced order approaches. These last approachesusually present the difficulty of ensuring continuity between these local models. Here, a new method ispresented that ensures this continuity by resorting to the paradigm of the partition of unity, while employing Proper Generalized Decompositions at each local patch.
