A comparison between the meshless and the finite volume methods for shallow water flows
A numerical comparison is presented between a meshless method and a finite volume method for solving the shallow water equations. The meshless method uses the multiquadric radial basis functions whereas a modified Roe reconstruction is used in the finite volume method. The obtained results using both methods are compared to experimental measurements.
