Abstract

top
We present one- and two-dimensional central-upwind schemes for approximating solutions of the Saint-Venant system with source terms due to bottom topography. The Saint-Venant system has steady-state solutions in which nonzero flux gradients are exactly balanced by the source terms. It is a challenging problem to preserve this delicate balance with numerical schemes. Small perturbations of these states are also very difficult to compute. Our approach is based on extending semi-discrete central schemes for systems of hyperbolic conservation laws to balance laws. Special attention is paid to the discretization of the source term such as to preserve stationary steady-state solutions. We also prove that the second-order version of our schemes preserves the nonnegativity of the height of the water. This important feature allows one to compute solutions for problems that include dry areas.
