Abstract: This System-Wide Water Resources Program (SWWRP) technical note presents the development and application of a pseudo-transient continuation inspired flow model of rapidly evolving hydrodynamic flows caused by dam and levee failures. This unstructured, implicit, finite element model relies on computed hydrodynamic residuals to automatically adjust the time step size. The result is an efficient and accurate prediction of both the speed and depth of shock waves as the dam-break flow passes over initially dry and wet land.
