Abstract: This paper is devoted to Object-Oriented analysis and design techniques to two computational modules in the field of dam-breaking. The C++ Object-Oriented language is used. After the problem partitioning into useful and adequate classes, the codes are developed, benefiting from the main features offered by Object-Oriented Programing, namely: modularity, data abstraction, inheritance, polymorphism and automatic memory allocation. When well-managed, object-oriented programming is found to be very promising as for programmer productivity, software flexibility and reusability, and software maintainability.
