We consider the system of partial differential equations governing
the one-dimensional flow of two superposed immiscible layers of
shallow water. The difficulty in this system comes
from the coupling terms involving some derivatives of the unknowns
that make the system nonconservative, and eventually nonhyperbolic.
Due to these terms, a numerical scheme obtained by performing an
arbitrary scheme to each layer, and using time-splitting or
other similar techniques leads to instabilities in...

The goal of this paper is to obtain a well-balanced, stable, fast, and robust HLLC-type approximate Riemann solver for a hyperbolic nonconservative PDE system arising in a turbidity current model. The main difficulties come from the nonconservative nature of the system. A general strategy to derive simple approximate Riemann solvers for nonconservative systems is introduced, which is applied to the turbidity current model to obtain two different HLLC solvers. Some results concerning the non-negativity...
