A Method of Lines Flux-Difference Splitting Finite Volume Approach for 1D and 2D River Flow Problems

  • The reliable forecasting of water levels is a very important issue. The modelling approach for water level forecasting at the Middle and Lower River Rhine is based on hydrodynamic river flow models coupled with precipitation-runoff models. The hydrodynamic model is defined by a numerical solution of the one-dimensional (1d) shallow water equations. If flood plains or flood risk maps are important, a two-dimensional (2d) model is required. In this paper the usage of the Alcrudo-Garcia-Navarro scheme (Alcrudo and Garcia-Navarro, 1993) for 1d and 2d problems within the method of lines framework is described. The scheme is slightly modified, in order to allow a more accurate solution of problems with strong variations in the bottom topography. The problem of drying and re-wetting of mesh-cells is not yet fully sufficiently solved. Numerical results for some test problems and an application to a natural river will be presented.
