Abstract

In this paper we propose a new reformulation of the first order hyperbolic model for unsteady turbulent shallow water flows recently proposed in Gavrilyuk et al. (J Comput Phys 366:252–280, 2018). The novelty of the formulation forwarded here is the use of a new evolution variable that guarantees the trace of the discrete Reynolds stress tensor to be always non-negative. The mathematical model is particularly challenging because one important subset of evolution equations is nonconservative and the nonconservative products also act across genuinely nonlinear fields. Therefore, in this paper we first consider a thermodynamically compatible viscous extension of the model that is necessary to define a proper vanishing viscosity limit of the inviscid model and that is absolutely fundamental for the subsequent construction of a thermodynamically compatible numerical scheme. We then introduce two different, but related, families of numerical methods for its solution. The first scheme is a provably thermodynamically compatible semi-discrete finite volume scheme that makes direct use of the Godunov form of the equations and can therefore be called a discrete Godunov formalism. The new method mimics the underlying continuous viscous system exactly at the semi-discrete level and is thus consistent with the conservation of total energy, with the entropy inequality and with the vanishing viscosity limit of the model. The second scheme is a general purpose high order path-conservative ADER discontinuous Galerkin finite element method with a posteriori subcell finite volume limiter that can be applied to the inviscid as well as to the viscous form of the model. Both schemes have in common that they make use of path integrals to define the jump terms at the element interfaces. The different numerical methods are applied to the inviscid system and are compared with each other and with the scheme proposed in Gavrilyuk et al. (2018) on the example of three Riemann problems. Moreover, we make the comparison with a fully resolved solution of the underlying viscous system with small viscosity parameter (vanishing viscosity limit). In all cases an excellent agreement between the different schemes is achieved. We furthermore show numerical convergence rates of ADER-DG schemes up to sixth order in space and time and also present two challenging test problems for the model where we also compare with available experimental data.
