A 2D Numerical Model for Simulation of Two-Dimensional Circular Dam-Break
The purpose of this paper is to present a 2D depth-averaged model under orthogonal curvilinear coordinates for simulating two-dimensional circular dam-break flows. The proposed model uses an orthogonal curvilinear coordinate system efficiently and accurately to simulate the flow field with irregular boundaries. As for the numerical solution procedure, The SIMPLEC solution procedure has been used for the transformed governing equations in the transformed domain. Practical application of the model is illustrated by an example, which demonstrates that the mathematical model can capture hydraulic discontinuities accurately such as steep fronts, hydraulic jump and drop, etc.
