 November 9, 2000, 07:20 BCs of hyperbolic Shallow Water Equation #1 Kang, S. K. Guest   Posts: n/a I am a graduate student who studies hydrodynamics. I want to solve hyperbolic 2-D shallow water equations (1 continuity eq, 2 momentum eqs) by Finite Volume Method using limiter with unstructued grid. For 1-D Saint-Venant equation, when flow is subcritical we specify 1 boundary condition (discharge or flow velocity) at upstream end and another one(water depth) is calculated from characteristic equation at upstream end. I got to know it becomes complicated when the problem is 2D. The characeristic line is no longer expressed in 2D plane. In 2D shallow water equation the unknowns are u, v, h (u,v=x,y velocity; h=water depth). For subcritical flow two variables(u, v) are known and one variable(h) us unknown at inflow boundary. How should I determine h ?

But the demonstration cases also used fixed flux at inlet boundary,ie. all (3) boundary values are imposed at inlet boundary by Dirichlet type. Anyway, I greatly appreciate your answer. Regards Kang, S. K.

The corresponding changes of BC are straightforward to derive and implement. Regards Sergei Zhubrin
