Application of the GRP scheme to open channel flow equations

Birman, A; Falcovitz, J.


The GRP (generalized Riemann problem) scheme, originally conceived for gasdynamics, is reformulated for the numerical integration of the shallow water equations in channels of rectangular cross-section, variable width and bed profile, including a friction model for the fluid-channel shear stress. This scheme is a second-order analytic extension of the first-order Godunov-scheme, based on time-derivatives of flow variables at cell-interfaces resulting from piecewise-linear data reconstruction in...[Show more]
