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.

Simplified discontinuous galerkin schemes for shallow water simulations
Author : Quentin Araud, Pascal Finaud-Guyot, Robert Mosť, Josť Vazquez , Sandra Isel and Vincent Guinot
Discontinuous Galerkin schemes have shown promising results to solve the 2D-shallow water equations in urban areas during flooding events using a finite element scheme. In this paper, the classical Runge Kutta time discretisation is replaced by the Eigen Vector linear Reconstruction (EVR) approach that allow to achieve the second order time discretisation in one computational step. The proposed method is compared to a classical RKDG approach on dam-break and experimental test cases. The EVR-DG approach appears to be as accurate as RKDG and 1.5 times faster than the Runge Kutta scheme.
