Numerical Model of Natural River Flow by Unstructure Space-Time SE-CE Method
A new horizontal two-dimensional mathematic scheme namely space-time Conservation Element and Solution Element (CE-SE) is introduced in this paper. The CE-SE method has some features which space and time are unified and treated on the same footing, both local and global flux are enforced conservation. The proposed model is applied to solve the 2-D shallow water equations in the triangular mesh, and tested by using the field data in Yangzi River. It shows that the hydraulics characters in natural rivers which are with complex boundaries and topography can be well simulated by using this new method.
