Abstract : This memoire, based on the works done at the ENS de Lyon (2008-2017), is made of two parts. The first one is concerned by several aspects of the numerical simulation of viscoplastic fluids, thanks to duality methods (augmented Lagrangian and Bermúdez-Moreno). On the one hand, works on the design of well - balanced finite volume numerical schemes for prototypes of Shallow Water Bingham models (i.e. integrated in the vertical direction) are described. The 1D case is summarized while the 2D framework, which constitutes an original contribution of this document, is given in more details. In particular, we finish by an illustration of a viscoplastic avalanche in the Taconnaz avalanche path (Chamonix, Mont-Blanc). On the other hand, we give a synthesis on the work on the full 2D incompressible Bingham equations (i.e. not integrated like in the previous case) and its comparison with physical experiments in an expansion-contraction geometry. In the second part, we give an overview of the work done within the INRIA Numed Team, concerning the development of Bayesian methods for the parameters estimation of PDEs based models. More precisely, this work is based on SAEM methods which are intensively used in Medicine and Biology. The computational cost, associated to the numerous evaluations of the PDE model, being prohibitive, we proposed: (i) the implementation of a fixed metamodel (computed offline), based on an autorefined (structured tree) interpolation grid. And (ii) a kriged metamodel which is refined online during the SAEM iterations.
