I will discuss discretisations for a fluid-poroelasticity interaction model. A five-field finite element scheme solves for Stokes velocity-pressure and Biot displacement-total pressure-fluid pressure. One of the distinctive features of the formulation is that its stability is established robustly in all material parameters. We propose robust preconditioners for this perturbed saddle-point problem using operators in weighted fractional spaces at the interface. The performance is corroborated by several test cases.
