The FullSWOF Project

FullSWOF is a free software distributed under CeCILL-V2 (GPL compatible) licence since 2012. It stands Full Shallow Water equations for Overland Flow and exists in two versions for 1D and for 2D cases.

In this software, the Shallow Water (or Saint-Venant in french) equations are solved using finite volumes and numerical methods especially chosen for hydrodynamic purposes (transitions between wet and dry areas, small water heights…). For more details, we refer to the publication list (below) and/or to the documentation which is enclosed with the downloaded sources.

The code is designed to facilitate further improvements; e.g. a new friction law can easily be added in the libfriction library. Please feel free to modify the source code (paying attention to the enclosed licence) and do not hesitate to contact us for informations.
