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.

A generalized reconstruction technique for the approximate solution of discontinuous bed shallow-water equations
Author : L. Cozzolino , R. Della Morte and D. Pianese
One-dimensional Shallow-water Equations are written considering, among the others, the hypotheses of hydrostatic pressure distribution and small bed slope: the system of hyperbolic equations which is obtained exhibits a geometric source term which is proportional to the nonconservative product of the water depth by the bed slope. Here, following the theory by Dal Maso, LeFloch and Murat, a numerical scheme is presented, which is well balanced and able to capture contact discontinuities due to bottom steps: the path used for the definition of the nonconservative product, able to represent the head losses encountered passing over the bottom discontinuity, is chosen in order to consider a hydrostatic pressure distribution acting onto the bed step.
