Hydrodynamic Instabilities in Well-Balanced Finite Volume Schemes for Frictional Shallow Water Equations. The Kinematic Wave Case.

We report the developments of hydrodynamic instabilities in several well-balanced finite volume schemes that are observed during the computation of the temporal evolution of an out-balance flow which is essentially a kinematic wave. The numerical simulations are based on the one-dimensional shallow-water equations for a uniformly sloping bed with hydraulic resistance. Subsequently, we highlight the need of low dissipative high-order well-balanced filter schemes for non-equilibrium flows with variable cut-off wavenumber to compute the out-balance flow under consideration, i.e. the kinematic wave.
