A numerical model for the solution of the two-dimensional dam break problem is described. The model which is based on a second-order approximate Riemann solver with a van Leer type limiter is used to solve the shallow water wave equation on a Cartesian grid. The shallow water equations include source terms which account for resistance to the flow and the influence of the bed slope. The wetting and drying process is also considered. The model is verified by comparing the model output with...[Show more]
