On a conservative finite-difference method for 1D shallow water flows based on regularized equations
We deal with the 1d shallow water system of equations and exploit its special parabolic regularization satisfying the energy balance law. We construct a three-point symmetric in space discretization such that the discrete energy balance law holds and check that it is well-balanced. The results of numerical experiments for the associated explicit finite-difference scheme are also given for several known tests to confirm its reliability and some advantages. The practical error behavior is also analyzed.
