Abstract: The use of two explicit, shock-capturing, finite-difference schemes, Lax and MacCormack, for the solution of two-dimensional shallow-water equations in steady, supercritical flow is investigated. Special attention is given to the inclusion of the boundary conditions. A satisfactory agreement between the computed results and the analytical solutions and experimental measurements shows that many practical problems may be simulated by the procedures presented.
