Physical Fractional Step Method for Solution of 2D Water Flow around a Spur Dike
A numerical model for simulating of 2D flow around a spur dike was presented by using the physical fractional-step method. The water governing equations were separated into three parts. The first is a convective problem; the second is a diffusive problem; and the third is a source term. The advantage of this method is that in the convective-diffusion equation a more reasonable scheme for the convective and diffusive operator is adopted respectively. Numerical simulation for 2D flow around a spur dike was implemented. The comparisons with other numerical solutions show that the proposed method can be capable of dealing with 2D spur-dike flows.
