IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Moving boundary treatment for runge-kutta discontinuous galerkin shallow water model
A wet-dry scheme for moving boundary treatment is implemented in the framework of discontinuous Galerkin shallow
water equations. As a formulation of approximate Riemann solver, the HLL (Harten-Lax-van Leer) numerical fluxes are
employed and the TVB (Total Variation Bounded) slope limiter is used for the removal of unnecessary oscillations. As
benchmark test problems, the dam-break problems and the classical problem of periodic oscillation in the parabolic bowl
are solved with linear triangular elements and second-order Runge-Kutta scheme. The results are compared with exact
solutions and the numerical solutions of previous study. For a more practical application, the implicit Runge-Kutta scheme
is employed for the bottom friction terms and the moving shoreline in a rectangular basin of varying slopes is simulated. In
all case studies, good agreement is observed with exact solutions or other well-known numerical solutions.
