We investigate the boundary condition between a free fluid and a porous medium, where the interface between the two is given as a periodically curved structure. Using a coordinate transformation, we can employ methods of periodic homogenisation to derive effective boundary conditions for the transformed system. In the porous medium, the fluid velocity is given by Darcy's law with a non-constant permeability matrix. In tangential direction as well as for the pressure, a jump appears. Its magnitudes can be calculated with the help of a generalised boundary layer function. The results can be interpreted as a generalised law of Beavers and Joseph for curved interfaces. © 2013 Académie des sciences.
